There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the American Fire Sprinkler Association Scholarship. Does your child have an interest in engineering and fire safety? This scholarship can help students gain the training they need to educate and promote fire sprinkler systems. Some schools that have fire protection programs are: OSU Stillwater, UMD College Park, University of New Haven and WPI. There are a variety of career paths that you can explore in their field—fire protection engineer, fire sprinkler contractor and fire sprinkler fitters are just a few. 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.
For colleges with Early Action or Early Decision deadlines of November 1, applications are due in less than 2 weeks!
