Tip of the Week
Advice from Stephanie Satcher, Jackson Get2College Center College Counselor: Don’t stress, let’s get organized! You’ve attended college fairs, visited college campuses, attended workshops, and started narrowing down college selections; now, we need financial aid. Some of us have college savings funds, but most only cover tuition cost. What about the entire cost of attendance (tuition, books, room, board, etc.)? It’s never too late to find scholarships! First, focus on the on the priority deadlines for institutional aid, most are renewable. Although December 1st is a common deadline for in-state colleges, leadership scholarships have a later deadline near February. Check around for local (businesses, churches, and organizations) scholarships! Maybe you are thinking everything is based on merit (GPA and ACT), but remember outside/private scholarships are based on a variety of factors. Create an account and check out scholarship search engines like; www.fastweb.com, www.scholarshipexperts.com, www.meritaid.com . Let’s stay organized!
