Because it is not IF students apply for scholarships, but HOW they apply that truly makes a difference.
College is expensive and seemingly out of reach for the average family. I know because I have been there with all three of my boys.
College scholarships have been our saving grace and my SMART applying strategies were the number one factor that allowed my husband and I to completely avoid any parent loans.
All of my scholarship-winning strategies can be found in my ebooks, How to Win College Scholarships: Guides for Parents and Students in 10 Easy Steps, but these 24 daily tips will give you a taste of how I have helped thousands of families reduce student debt and become successful scholarship recipients.
I hear this almost daily and I’m not even kidding when I say that it seriously hurts my ears,
“My student applied for tons of scholarships and did not win any. It was such a waste of time.”
Well, it IS a waste of time if no research is done to learn HOW to apply and WHAT the scholarship judges love and appreciate in their chosen winners.
THERE IS A BETTER WAY!
Don’t just take it from me though, this is what fellow parents are saying about the information found in my ebooks:
“Priceless!!! Monica’s tips helped our family substantially. My oldest daughter will graduate this spring without a single penny paid out of our pockets or hers. She even has over $26K in excess funding. My youngest daughter has earned enough to cover her bachelor’s and has earned over an additional $11K which she will put towards her master’s degree. The majority of scholarships my daughters earned were not sizable. Most came in $500 and $1000 awards. The smaller scholarships really add up. Your students need a hand full of solid essays to recycle, and you should partner with them to apply relentlessly to every scholarship they qualify for. Thank you, Monica Matthews, for sharing your wisdom and guidance.” P.S., Texas
“Son is a freshman and so far nothing out of pocket at least for this 1st year. For years 2-4, out of pocket is reasonable and will be paid from 529 so no loans. Remaining $ in 529 is geared for graduate school. But we’re consistently working on outside scholarships. Definitely pick up the How to Win Scholarships guides. Very valuable info. One of my son’s scholarship committees were so impressed with his hard copy application they gave him a $100 visa giftcard outside of the normal $500 scholarship. They said the “packet” was so impressive & the heavyweight paper. Also, his interview was impressive as well but they couldn’t get over his packet.” W.Y., Facebook Fan
I absolutely love helping families in the scholarship process and my gift to you is the priceless information revealed daily in this College Scholarship Advent Calendar.
