Scholarships are the big neutralizers when it comes to funding your college education. There are millions of dollars worth of scholarships out there, and you can find them ranging from $100-$40,000+! The great thing about scholarships is that they are not just given to students for grades. You could receive a scholarship for knowing about fire sprinklers, being too tall, winning a marble tournament, being a member of Star Trek's Starfleet, or having the best duct taped dress at prom.

It does take some work on your end, but we want to help!
