Paying for College
Updated: Sep 23, 2019
I bet that title caught your eye, didn't it?
If you're reading this blog, the chances are good you are looking to go to college. We all have images of what it will be like.....
You're going to spend plenty of time studying.
You'll attend classes.
You'll make friends!
And, for some, there will be an additional job, required. Why did I say, "additional"? Because, let's face it, college is a lot of work. Basically, a "job" that you are paying to do. And many students worry that getting a job will affect their education. So, how much time would you really have to get a part time job?
So, you look at this, do the math, and figure you have plenty of time for a part time job. And you may be right! Part of the college experience is learning to balance life. But what if you could get some help? Whether or not you work part time, while in college, having some extra money for school, is always a good thing.
This year the ACT is offering a scholarship to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. If you register for the ACT, between 9/3/2019 and 6/26/2020, you will be, automatically, entered for a chance to win a $15,000 scholarship. Here is the link that gives all the details.
College is an amazing experience and you want to do what you can to reduce the costs. You will find that there are many scholarships that are available. Most have requirements, such as an essay or a particular GPA. This scholarship just requires you to sign up for an exam, that you were going to take, anyway. So, why not?
