Hello. We think we know you. You are a good student, maybe even a great or fabulous student. You are looking forward to going to college. Or, more likely, you are in your senior year and getting organized for the full-court press of getting into the college of your choice and getting the scholarship you need to be sure you and your family can afford this next step of your education.
ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s pretty exciting and more than a little nerve-racking. YouÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re already dealing with the pressures of your high school career, and they are significant, we know. The process of getting ready, getting into, and paying for college is a very big, extra project in your already crowded life.
You may be reading this Web site because youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve already concluded that you will apply for a scholarship. Or the question of whether to apply for scholarships may not have an obvious answer for you yet. Either way, itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s sensible to read our Web site and get the facts about college scholarships as well as the best advice we can offer about how to succeed in winning scholarships.
We will spend time on this Web site explaining how college funding works, the types of college scholarships available, how to find a scholarship, and how to apply for one. ThatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s pretty standard issue for a Web site about scholarships, although we think (if youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll pardon us saying so) that weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve done an excellent job of being comprehensive and readable. HereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s whatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s different.
We know that the path to success in earning scholarships has approximately three parts. (This process is hardly so simplistic that anyone should presume to do more than approximate the components.)
