Disclosure: No one has paid to be listed here.
A must-have document for any student - high school or
college. There are some fairly technical tools that can
unlock the scholarship process. If you don't know how
to use them, you're missing out.
- Richard Mondello, Tufts ‘11
The speciﬁc and practical instructions and use of
current technology are perfect. I also love that it's very
proactive and that it lets students know they can take
responsibility for funding their education instead of
relying on others.
- Terry Klein, Asst. Director of Financial Aid, WITC
I deﬁnitely plan to keep using your guide on throughout
college and I plan to pass it on to other students also.
The scholarship counter is up to $8,500 in personal
scholarships, which I totally didn't expect!
