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.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”—Ghandi
Many students volunteer at some point because (a)mom and dad made them do it, (b)it was a requirement of high school graduation, or (c)they truly felt a call to help solve a problem in their community. What may begin as a parental suggestion can quickly turn into a passion for helping others. This scholarship is for young Nevada women are who committed to the cause–whatever that cause may be.
