New Scholarship Opportunities
Each year tons of money for college goes unclaimed because no one applied for the scholarships offered by various organizations.
It is so much better to get money for college that doesn't have to be repaid, rather than take out student loans which do need to be repaid. With just a little effort, you could be awarded scholarship funds to offset tuition and fees.
Take a look at the scholarships below, all of which adult/non-traditional students qualify for. If you are interested click on the links to find out more information and apply.
