There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Stamps President’s Scholarship. The Stamps President’s Scholarship is the most prestigious scholarship offered to the top 1-2% of incoming applicants to Georgia Tech. Recipients do not need to be residents of Georgia, and, in fact, half of the annual recipients are non-residents. While academics do play a big part in the selection process, other factors like leadership and community service, are taken into consideration. For more information on this scholarship and how to apply, check out the College Coach Insider blog at blog.getintocollege.com.
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.
