There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Clark Global Scholars Program Scholarship. International students who wish to study in the United States often have limited opportunities for funding. The Global Scholars Program (GSP) at Clark University, however, provides scholarship dollars to incoming international students who have demonstrated considerable leadership skills in their home countries. The program allows the good work of recipients to continue on campus with mandatory community service participation. Additionally, scholarship winners benefit from a dedicated mentor during their entire college experience. 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.
