There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Coca-Cola Scholars program. The Coca-Cola Scholars Scholarship is a highly competitive, multi-stage, merit program for strong student leaders who are committed to making positive changes in their schools and communities. Scholars receive support from program alumni and the foundation throughout their entire college experience. Winners become part of a network of future leaders who “hope to make the world a better place” and are invited back (every 5 years) to a leadership conference run by program alumni. 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.
