College Affordability Starts with the Scholarship Search 

Your students are probably searching for or applying to the perfect college as we speak. But remind those students that now is also the perfect time to start their scholarship search. Scholarships and grants are essentially free money that can reduce college costs and keep students out of debt. So help them maximize their scholarship-winning potential by reminding them to:

  • Explore outside scholarships.  Scholarship search engines provides thousands of scholarship opportunities to high school students, which is just free money for the taking. Even if students don’t have high GPAs, chances are there are still scholarships available for them. Check out SimpleTuition’s free Scholarship Center for the newest way to explore these opportunities.
  • Read applications carefully. When applying to colleges, students should carefully review all application materials. Many colleges offer specific scholarships to artists, athletes, and other talented individuals. To qualify, students typically have to submit a piece of art, an athletic record, or a separate essay.
  • Actively search. In order to successfully obtain college funding, students should exercise their ambition: reach out to local community organizations, civic organizations, religious groups, the Rotary or Lions Club, and state governments.

Our point? There’s so much money to be had and your students deserve some of it. So let the search begin.
