How are all of you doing? I’ve been so busy studying and trying to find new scholarships to help pay for school that it takes up a lot of my time.
Since I’m on the topic of scholarships, I just want to say thank you to everyone who voted for me in last November. Unfortunately, my entry didn’t make it to the next round. So, I’m out.
I also want to take a moment to let my readers know about the many scholarship opportunities that are out there. I did some legwork and found out that students can go to their public libraries, check newspapers, magazines and search scholarship websites like Fastweb and Scholarships.com to help them land great scholarships. I’ve also even heard good information about scholarships for categories that fit my qualifications through friends and family by word of mouth. I’m Hispanic, I have a 4.0 GPA, I live in a low-income community, and I want to volunteer in my neighborhood. So maybe if you’re Hispanic too and like Goya, you can check out their website and sign up for their scholarship. Do you like to shop at JCPenny, and eat at Burger King? Taking a look at their scholarship offers might be worth a shot. Check out their websites, and you might qualify for some of their scholarships.
I also can’t stress enough about opportunities that high school students have to land some awards. They benefit from communicating with their guidance counselors to help them sign up for scholarships ahead of time. I’m kind of paying the price for not listening to my high school counselors who told me ahead of time to sign up for scholarships. I didn’t even know if I wanted to pursue a college degree at that time, but I had a change of heart since then.
Now, I want to study! 🙂
If you’re like me and in need of scholarships there are so many options! Just look around your in your community, check the library, and go online.
