When they say, money does not grow on trees, well yeah, they’re kind of right. but, after searching through this list of scholarship sites and all the money available from companies and people that want to give it to you. There are literally millions of dollars in scholarships that never get awarded. Look now at what you can do to fully pay for your entire college career!
There is so much being said regarding federal funding and the need for oversight of higher education, grants and programs that are now closely regulated and monitored as a result of the government’s involvement.
Now the back and forth is and continues to be the amount actually available for students to attend college. I wouldn’t count on it.
I’m sorry and wish I had better news for you, but just look around and see how so much of what we are doing now and the money we are spending will be a direct burden on all of us in the future. This includes providing more and more funds for higher education.
