With the winter holidays over, every college-going student is headed back to his usual classes. And with money being a scarce commodity, the scholarships that can be yours for the taking are there alright. A little effort on your part may result in obtaining one and thereby profiting from the experience.
Who doesn’t like his or her way to a hot future career made easy via a bit of financial help. The scholarships that are available for those living the “prince life” in college come in many categories and genres.
As a freshman, you may avail the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All it takes is a couple of phone calls made and emails hurriedly typed out to your guardians. FAFSA is your passport to the future. But you need to be prompt about it so that you don’t miss the deadline.
Next step, if this fails, is to get the services of an expert in the matter. A financial aid officer can really make your day by lending you specialized advice that will resonate with your goals.
Then there are the assets you already possess. If you are good at sports or show remarkable capabilities in music, drama or computers, then you may be eligible for a scholarship. It will be based on the subject or field of endeavor in which you excel.
Just concentrating on what one is best at is the ideal method of grabbing a scholarship. And whether it is partial or not doesn’t matter. What matters is that in today’s times of economic crisis, every dollar saved counts.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
