Getting a piece of the sholarship pie

Every year, billions of dollars are given away in the form of scholarships and grants. The trickiest part of applying for college scholarships is finding out which ones the student is eligible for and has a chance of winning. 93% of all financial aid comes through the colleges and universities themselves and is therefore called "Institutional Aid". This aid is offered in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study programs and student loans. Only 7 percent of all financial aid is awarded through outside sponsors. However, these are the scholarships that are often the ones that are the most highly coveted and hotly contested.

Finding scholarships is not just about the search. It starts with understanding yourself and what makes you unique. It's all about assessment - assessing yourself and assessing the scholarships that come into your radar. Are you a good match? Too many students waste their time chasing the big dollar scholarships when they could more easily win a handful of the smaller ones.

As part of the Upper Level Homeschool class, we have created materials that will help your student get organized, understand his strengths, track his progress and stay in control of the scholarship application process.

You can find out more about this online class here -

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
