Upon graduating with a decent engineering degree and working just about enough to pay off the debt, how can one give back to the society?

My mother always emphasized on something - "always leave something better than how you found it". I would like to live up to her model. #engineering #volunteering #payback #mindfulness #satisfaction #technology #upliftment

Will getting a job affect my chances for scholarships at college?

I’m really young and will be going to high school soon, but my family needs the money for the future. I’ve heard about a possibility that if you work while in high school, you won’t get a scholarship for the money. I was wondering if this was true. #scholarship #highschool #college...

Playing the Odds with Scholarships

I would love to finance my #higher-education with more #scholarship money, especially given a cut in state funding for #financial-aid taking effect next year. Is it more worthwhile to devote my time to the easier #scholarships that simply require me to sign up for a website or take a survey?...

Love to hear replies on this: What's the happiest experience you've had in college and/or high school? Tell me about it.

I know a lot of us on here are looking at that college scholarship sweepstakes, but take some time away for scholarship searching, and share something. Super cliche, but why the heck not. #yolo #scholarship #college #hashtag #mental-health #student #education...
