Well, here we go again…a nice and full list of scholarships provided for you! I’m on my journey to get this full list to you in a few different posts. But here’s a start…
Another year starting up,m and with that, more opportunities for you to receive money for free to pay for college…and then some! I’m always on the hunt for scholarships and websites that you all can take advantage of in your search for the millions and millions of dollars available to you to pay for college. There are even people who win so much in scholarships that they have extra money to pay for other things for college like gas, food, rent, etc. But you have to take the initiative.
