In the next five years, sixteen million high school students will graduate, making up the largest group of high school graduates in this country’s history. Those students who are fortunate enough to be on the honor roll or the star quarterback of the football team will have access to the best scholarships. But what will happen to the rest of them—those students who have the potential for a great college career, but not necessarily the financial backing to attend the school of their dreams? Author Kimberly Stezala passionately believes that every student should have access to a quality education. Now, she shows parents and their kids how to approach the scholarship process like a pro. Filled with inspiring advice from successful students and scholarship providers, Scholarships 101 shows aspiring college kids how to: apply for those scholarships that are the best match for their profile and skills • create a scholarship application that will stand apart from the rest and impress the judges • find the buried treasure of scholarships that aren’t necessarily available on common websites • build a team of supporters in their scholarship quest Straightforward and savvy, this book provides the extra boost many students need to plan for their futures and receive the education they deserve.
