Want free money for college? Apply for scholarships.
You’ll be helping yourself and your parents.
There are thousands of scholarships. Most interestingly, each scholarship is looking for different things from students. So if your grades aren’t the best, there are still scholarships for you. Scholarships are specified for students based on grade, ethnicity, religion, personalities, hobbies, choice of majors, illnesses and disabilities, family history, types of service projects, organizations, skills, ability to answer essay questions and more. Are you tall? Can you design a greeting card? Can you do a great duck call? Are you a leader or a vegetarian activist? If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions, there is a scholarship for you to apply to.
