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.
The EngineerGirl website, sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering, informs a wide audience about exciting opportunities for girls interested in the field of engineering. A slight tweak on the usual scholarship process, EngineerGirls is looking for creative students who want to try their hand at a fictional story featuring—you guessed it—a brainy female lead who saves the day with her critical thinking skills and her problem solving powers.
