There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Thomas D. Simpson Scholarship, awarded by the Railway Supply Institute. Do you or your parents work for an organization that is a member of the Railway Supply Institute or the Coordinated Mechanical Association? Current college students can compete for a minimum of five scholarships ranging from $2500 to $5000. More details, including deadlines and how to apply can be found on 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.
“Even if you are on the right track you will get run over if you just sit there.”
