Parents and students alike are often worried about how to finance college. And the media doesn’t put their mind at ease either. The media has been showing students getting saddled with student debts. The reality is that student loans are part of the free application for federal student aid program (commonly known as FAFSA), and the program is designed for students to be able to attend college to achieve their degrees, so they may enter the workforce.
For students who are interested in lowering their overall cost of attendance, they may obtain scholarships to help finance their education. There are so many various scholarships available; however, very few students take advantage of these opportunities. Find a scholarship that pertains to an issue you care about. For example, care about our little furry friends? Submit an essay to help bring awareness to animal cruelty and put an end to animal suffering. Plus, earn a scholarship to help you, too!
The contest is supported by a partnership between the Animal Welfare Institute and the Humane Education Network with additional support from the Palo Alto Humane Society. Participants must currently be enrolled in middle or high school, or be home-schooled, and less than 19 years of age on January 23, 2020 (the date the contest opened for entries).
