Do your parents work in the beverage industry? Are you from Malta? Do you have a part-time job? Well, college advisor Alice Kleeman wants to talk to you about scholarships. Don't assume there are no scholarships available for a student like you. Read on for her excellent advice and some new ideas about what might be out there for you...
“Yeah, that’s if your family has NO money …”
“You have to have straight A’s to get one of those, right?”
“Oh yeah, those are for basketball players and other athletes, aren’t they?”
“Well, sure—if you’ve done four years of community service without stopping to breathe, you might get one!”
These are the views some students have about scholarships. And believing that scholarships are only for the top students, athletes, and those who serve might cause them to miss out on opportunities!
In the 19 years I have been administering scholarships, I’ve seen the most amazing opportunities -- opportunities to earn scholarships ranging from $500 to ten or even twenty times that amount and for unusual and even quirky talents, interests, and goals.
