Save with Scholarships!
Rising college debt is a real problem for students and their families. Is there a way to reduce the financial burden of attending college? Yes, scholarship money. Families and students are often overwhelmed by the process of applying for scholarships. Students feel like they won’t qualify for a scholarship due to their household income or insufficient GPA level. According to the experts, there are scholarship opportunities out there for everyone. Scholarship money is a gift that does not need to be paid back, but how do you find a scholarship? We went to a local expert to get some clear answers. John Szentesy is the Associate Director of Financial Aid at Mansfield University. He gave us valuable tips to help students and families successfully attack the scholarship application process.
