I remember my scholarship search before I graduated from high school pretty well. I spent countless hours pouring through books and searching the internet with my mom and dad, crossing our fingers that we would come across something that I qualified for. We encountered many late nights, and I had a new-found after school project- must find scholarships! Of course, scholarship hunting has changed in the past eleven years, and now there are wonderful places to look for scholarships!
I am so happy that I found my new favorite place to search for scholarships! By using ScholarshipsOnline.org, I can search for scholarships at my own pace. My husband has been encouraging me to continue my education, by seeking a degree related to public relations, marketing, etc, and I can't say that I'm not intrigued by the idea. Anyone can use this helpful tool, whether their goal is to head off to an ivy league school, or to take a few classes at a local community college. What I really like about it, is that they take the time to educate parents and perspective students/applicants on what scholarships really are.
