How to Pay for SchoolPosted on September 9, 2017 Written by Cathy Allen
There are hundreds of scholarship and grants available for education. Use the public library to find lists of these scholarships and grants. The public library offers many tools including computers if one does not have one at home. With a computer, look up scholarships and grants offered by some of these criteria…
- Ethnic groups: There are scholarships for different ethnic groups such as American Indian, Irish, Native American, German ect.
- Occupation: Health, Library Science, Engineers, all these and more have special interest scholarship and grant programs.
- Rotary Groups, Woman's Clubs, Men's Clubs, Knights of Columbus, Lions Clubs: Look into local clubs and groups, many times these special interest groups offer educational grants and scholarships.
- Volunteer: Look into volunteer activities within local hospitals, nursing homes, community efforts. Network to learn about available opportunities.
- Academic or skill achievement scholarship and grants: Play an instrument, sport or sing? Won a chess competition? Schools with music and extracurricular activities often offer scholarship programs if one participates within those activities while attending that school.
What scholarship and grants cannot pay, look into student loans from a local bank or credit union. SLS, GSL or Stafford Loans are guaranteed by the federal government. Look at any local bank for more information or search online.
