Scholarship Saturday – May 10, 2014

Scholarship Saturday

Current Scholarships Available Here

Many students and their parents worry about the cost of a college education. College is a huge investment, and the cost of attendance across the country continues to go up. One way to start lowering the cost of a college education is to look for and apply for scholarships.

There are thousands of scholarships out there. Some are large scholarships that are well publicized, while others are lesser known. My goal is to share some lesser-known scholarships with my readers every Saturday. Check back every Saturday for more scholarships.
