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.
As the saying goes, “It is better to give than to receive.” Many students graduate high school with loads of community service hours under their belt. Through service to others, they have shown compassion and empathy. Additionally, volunteerism helps hone essential skills such as team building, problem solving, and project management. And in this circumstance, performing community service can also lead to scholarship funding.
