Scholarship

Son #1 has earned a handful - maybe 4 or 5, but all small.  I think he has earned about $5,000 total give or take. His school is very expensive, so he applied for a lot to get what he did - maybe 30 applications.

Son #2 - at COSC, applied for 2 distance learning scholarships didn't get either

Son #3 - at our community college, applied for 5 scholarships and got all 5. He rec'd full tuition and books with an overage.  So, not huge dollar-wise, but percentage-wise was more than 100%, so we are very pleased. He will save that overage to put toward next year in the event that he doesn't have repeat success.

I have a friend who started a scholarship business, she got all 4 years of her tuition and room and books paid- she even had an overage.  Her's was 6-figures.  The take-away she taught me is that you're not applying for enough scholarships.  Apply weekly until you graduate and walk the stage.  She said she applied every weekend and attributes that to not only increasing her odds, but learning what they liked - she said a good essay (one that results in $$$) should be reused.

Thanks for the advice! I will keep trying and hopefully will return with a success story!
