There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Senator George J. Mitchell Scholarship.

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.
In honor of the former Senator George J. Mitchell, this scholarship provides a unique learning opportunity for future American leaders to study in Ireland. Senator Mitchell was a key contributor to the Northern Ireland peace process and this scholarship rewards academically talented students who demonstrate a commitment to community and public service.
