There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Stuck at Prom Scholarship. Just because your student can’t attend their Prom this year doesn’t mean that they need to miss out on ALL of the fun. Applicants for this scholarship of up to $10,000 – yes, you heard that right, $10,000 – must show a photo or video of their prom attire which includes Duck Brand duct tape. For more information on the Stuck at Prom Scholarship, 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.
