There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another. And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free. It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you. While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier.
Students who attend an out-of-state public college or university generally pay more for college. Tuition is discounted for in-state students, and everyone else pays a higher tuition rate. A competitive, two-tiered merit scholarship program established at the University of Maine helps equal the playing field for strong students from other states who wish to attend the institution.
