An Unconventional Guide to Paying for College

Money for College Project Weekly Roundup: Scholarship of the Day

Yesterday I decided to finally roll out a new segment of the Money for College Project: The Scholarship of the Day!

One main focus of this blog is helping you find money for college, and traditionally one of the best sources of college money is scholarships. Scholarships are amazing, but their one big problem is that people don’t know about them. Getting the word out about a scholarship is the hardest task for a scholarship committee, and finding scholarships is the hardest task for college students.

This new segment is intended to bring these two groups together. To match prospective college students with real scholarships they can apply for. You may not qualify for every scholarship that you see posted here, but I promise you that there will be many that you can apply for.

If you are a scholarship committee and have a scholarship you would like to promote, please let me know, and I will be happy to get it posted for you!

Enjoy the selections for this week!

  1. Thanks for the mention, love the new site design!

    • @Shaun — Thanks! Not sure if I had mentioned it before or not, but I also love your logo. Did you do that yourself or have it done elsewhere?

      • Ha! it was actually a free button that I came across. Amazing what you can find with a bit of searching, but I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard to get something similar made through Fiver or 99 Designs etc. for a small fee.

        • @Shaun — Awesome. I’ve never done anything through Fiverr, but I have always wanted to try. I have a few other niche sites I am looking to get logos for. Thanks!

  2. Good idea about the scholarships. Thanks for the inclusion in the “Yakezie friends”.

    • @Van Beek — Thanks! I am really hoping to spread the word about these scholarships. This is often the most difficult and frustrating part of finding money for school.

  3. Wow,
    Thanks so much for the link!! Also, it looks very cool that you represented links as buttons!


  4. Thanks for including my post!

  5. Like the idea about the scholoarships. Looking forward to seeing them posted!

    • Thanks Cindy! — My goal is to post one at least every weekday, and possibly on the weekends. So there should be plenty to check out!
