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.
Top Baby Gears wants to help families sort through the overwhelming number of baby products on the market and help a lucky college student earn some tuition dollars. Think back—way back—tapping into the spirit of your inner child, and see if you can come up with the next original idea for what babies really want. Many parents will thank you (including yours, if you win this scholarship!).
