PART 4: SCHOLARSHIPS: FINDING THEM, APPLYING FOR THEM, WINNING THEM
If you've never applied for a college scholarship, probably most of what you think you know is wrong. Don't be alarmed by this. After all, a lot of what you think you know about history is wrong, too (Pilgrims never landed on Plymouth Rock, Van Gogh did not shoot himself and Hitler didn't have only one testicle, etc.)
In the following lines, we'll spend a little time debunking the myth that scholarships are not for you. And then we'll spend the rest of our time looking at how and why scholarships are just the thing you need to help make college affordable and less debtsome.
The misconceptions surrounding college scholarships can be summed up as follows: “Scholarships are only for low-income female and minority 4.0GPA students who can write an essay worthy of Hemingway. Plus, there is too much competition, they are too much work and even if I do win a scholarship, it will be too small to really make a difference.”
Now, we only have so much time together so rather than debunk each item listed in the satirical statement above, let's just say that none of it is true.
In a number of ways, scholarships represent the best, the most rewarding financial aid opportunities discussed.
