All the scholarships I have been applying to are just $1,000. I know money is money and receiving any kind of that for college is good, but I just want to help my parents out more. If anyone can help me figure that out, I will be grateful! #collegeisstressful.. #college #scholarship...

How do you gain enough money in scholarhips to go to any college or University of your choosing with billions of people competing for that same money with the same drive and necessity as you?

College is pitched as a necessity but priced as a privilege. With great grades, an incredible amount of determination, and as much prayer you can fathom, many students still don't get to experience college because hey simply cant afford it. Loans, and grants must first be approved and even when...

Can I use old volunteer experience on scholarship applications?

I have quite a bit of volunteer experience, but all of it is from over 3 years ago. Can I still use that experience to apply for scholarships or is it too old to be relevant? #scholarships #volunteering #scholarship...

Given that they are used in a constructive manner, how much does having social media (such as Facebook, Instagram, etc...) improve your chances of receiving scholarships?

I have been applying for the scholarships that students qualify for in their junior year of high school, and many of them ask you to post statements to your social media to improve your chances of receiving the scholarship. I do not have social media accounts and was wondering if making these...

What are the chances that an employer or company would consider paying for/offering a scholarship to a particular student that financially needs it and will agree to work for them in the future?

These days the cost of college keeps rising and the rate of unemployment seems to be increasing as well. I also understand that it is up to students to find scholarships that fit their financial situation and academic standards. However, I feel as though if more and more employers care about...

Why are merit-based scholarships offered by colleges demanding very high test scores and GPA's?

In the modern age, having a 2400 on the SAT (at least the previous version) and a 4.0+ GPA seems to be the only way to be fully-funded by universities, and for some that doesn't even cut it. Doesn't such standards discourage students from applying to those institutions? I understand that...
