Mention a million dollars in scholarships as few as ten years ago, and most university officials and everybody else would have laughed in your face.
It won’t happen today.
College scholarship opportunities have grown tremendously and the cost of an undergraduate education continues to go up and up with no relief in sight.
The value of a four-year military academy degree is now at $397,450.
Who could afford that?
Thankfully West Point, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy is free to the students.
That’s one giant government scholarship. Can a half-million dollar tuition be far behind?
Tuition and fees for a handful of private universities and colleges already tops is a quarter million, and many more are well over a hundred and fifty big ones.
A helpless called for help because his son’s first year tuition, majoring in engineering, would be almost $40,000. One year! Scary? You bet! Another dad told me that his son would graduate next year owing $51,761.
Will the total college bill reach a million dollars? But with the birth of the Internet, it is just a matter of time until someone takes up the challenge and amasses a million bucks in scholarship awards. Yes, it can be done. There is no limit to the number of scholarships any one person can win. It can be done by surfing, exploring and utilizing the Internet.
There are five important keys to Internet scholarship search success: persistence, persistence, persistence, persistence and creativity. Millions of dollars in scholarships are on the net with millions and millions of dollars to be handed out. Why not to you?
Be sure to check out the U.S. Department of Education websites, and the 50 state education sites. Look hard at colleges and universities that you might want to attend. Consider unions, service groups, associations, and social organizations. Look for websites that emphasize a particular skill or talent you may have or wish to acquire.
This is also great opportunities for minorities, Native Americans, African-Americans and Seniors Citizens. Add those words to “scholarships” and watch the magic begin.
Use a variety of search engines. Don’t register at every website that offers free information about scholarships. Substitute the word “grants” for ”scholarships” and search again.
