There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Coalition Exploration Scholarship. The Coalition for College has combined early college preparation activities with an opportunity for students to win money. For more information on setting up a MyCoalition account, 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 Bright Horizons College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This ongoing scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the post 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.
We believe that students should start looking for outside scholarships as early as freshman year of high school. Students who set up a MyCoalition account can not only look for scholarships, they can apply for one!
