Would you like to attend college almost for free? Then you're in luck. It can be done. Millions of dollars are available from private and federal programs -- and not all are reserved for the class valedictorian! Many are awarded based on a student's special interests, projected major, and other criteria. With college costs rising by 6 to 15 percent or more annually, no one can afford to be without the guidance offered in this book.

Cynthia and Phillip McKee have created the sourcebook on finding scholarship money -- now fully revised and updated to include more than 6,000 entries representing over $8.5 billion in scholarships and grants! But this book is more than just a compendium of scholarships. It is also a step-by-step road map through the entire financial application process. The McKees explain how to create a sparkling resume, write persuasive essays, obtain recommendation letters, negotiate the financial-aid maze, avoid common pitfalls, and learn the useful shortcuts that can pave the way for success. Sample letters, schedules, and charts show you how to prepare your strongest application and stay on top of deadlines. A comprehensive index helps you find all the scholarship opportunities for which you may be eligible.

"If you have only one shot, make it your best one!" say the McKees. This book will help you take your best shot at attending the college of your dreams.
