Local Scholarships – Most students lose their motivation to apply for additional scholarships once they get admitted to their desired college. T.Q. was a student who was determined to cover the total cost of her college education on her own, without the financial support of her parents. I helped her find many local and national scholarship opportunities and she applied for more than 50 scholarships. She didn’t win every one of them, but getting scholarships is a numbers game. She won a total of $15,000 which helped her tremendously to meet her goal of paying for college on her own.
