The First List…
Every few months I like to post a couple of articles and lists of scholarships available and scholarship websites that I find through the research I do or general information regarding college financing, funding and scholarships that is available.
Some unique scholarships…
This list is pretty cool as it’s specifically targeted toward certain degrees, careers and big corporations that are posting and offering scholarships.
Scholarship finding tips…
Now is the time when most scholarships are being awarded and available. Get going now as you have a lot of money waiting for you. Whether you are a senior this year, or will be next year. Or if you are a college student now, it’s not too late to start searching for scholarships now and keep a running list!
Tip 1: Proper preparation make a production person- if you prepare yourself early enough you could go to college for free.
Tip 2: Make sure you check out all requirements on these scholarships.
Tip 3: Many of you are eligible simply because of the degree you are going to school for.

So, here they are…
I checked out all these sites and they seem pretty easy to understand and legit. Check them out. Who knows what you could find now available as current scholarships, or what you can prepare yourself for next year.
The more you prepare, the better off you will be for paying for college…even all of it…
All of these scholarships have specific requirements, so be sure to read through the instructions on applying. Have all the necessary resources and backup documentation available. Pretty cool scholarships right? If you work for Burger King, you are eligible!
