Finding Private Scholarships
November was an exciting month with the receipt of the first college admit letter for my son. Watching your child’s face light up when they get their first notice of good news from a college is priceless. With that excitement, however, brings a striking reminder that a college financing plan is key as we plan to pay for this huge investment. I feel good about having already filed both the FAFSA and the CSS Profile Form, but know that there are other necessary steps to take related to financing college. Although we have been searching for private scholarships throughout the year, getting that first college admit letter kicked us into high gear. Knowing that many parents are in the same situation, I wanted to share some ideas related to the private scholarship search process.
