  22. 22. Does it work?
  23. 23. 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

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
