Scholarship Saturday – July 19, 2014

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.

Don’t wait. Apply for these great scholarships today! (And if you missed last week’s Scholarship Saturday, check it out. There are scholarships there that are still open!)
