Going to any college, no matter what your grade point average and athletic ability, is not difficult.
The student raises those barriers that keep them from achieving that goal. Any student can go to any school of higher education without the financial barrier with or without their own money.
Scholars Fund has derived how to reach that goal in six steps.
- Identify the college of choice.
We must stop here to make a clarification. Previously, we stated going to any school despite grade point average and financial ability. We must make this point absolutely clear.
We mean that you can get scholarship funding for your higher education no matter what your grade point average is. If your GPA is not up to par, the school of your choice may still reject you. However, if that same college accepts you and gives little to no financial aid, Scholars Fund is here to help.
- What field of study will you be pursuing? What is your major?
What is your minor? It is always a good idea to choose a minor that is related to your major. For example: if you are a journalism major, a related minor might be English.
- Know what your yearly tuition is going to be.
Knowing the college you want to go to and knowing the major and minor will give you a very good idea of what the yearly tuition is going to be.
Filling out the student survey THOROUGHLY will be a tremendous help with this part of the process. Use the college calculators found in this blog to help with that.
- Decide you are going to find scholarships worth three times the amount of yearly tuition.
If your yearly tuition is $25,000, decide now you are going to find free money worth $75,000.
