10 Award Scholarships
It is challenging enough to try to plan for college education funding for children without major increases with each payment of fees. Many parents whose students are attending college now are not able to make a difference and, later, students are increasing their student loan balances. The Student Debt Project reported that the schools they surveyed, the average student debt loan for the class of 2010 was US $ 25,250 for those with debt; 98 with average debt reports colleges of more than $ 35,000. Seventy-three colleges said that more than 90% of the class of 2010 graduated with debt. There is another answer.
In today's economic climate, it is even more vital for students to apply for scholarships.The point is if a student has the ability, know-how and dedication to get the best grades and SAT scores and they are involved in leadership positions, student government and community service, they should fight for the large grants paying. Here are some scholarships for high dollar value. Some take financial need into account, but it's not all:
Bags Buick Achievers program - This $ 25,000 bag is among the largest amounts of tendering and has the added benefit of being renewable every year for four years (or five to five years engineering programs) causing the US value $ 100,000 or more. Buick (through the GM Foundation) is making a significant commitment to bags as they award $ 2,000 scholarships at once for an additional 1,000 students as well. The high school student is not interested in cars? They are looking for students who want to build, car design or tomorrow's market. Applicants must be interested in entering the automotive and related sectors so that they are looking for students who want to graduate in engineering, design, and business. Grades and financial need are the first cut, but look beyond that to community service and a whole host of other factors, including the student is female, minority, a member of the armed forces or a veteran or dependent one veteran.
Merit scholarships - There are many colleges that offer merit scholarships that are based on academic performance. According to US News and World Report, University Briar Cliff in Sioux City, Iowa pays the highest percentage of merit scholarships in the country, with 98% of students receiving help with non-need basis. Many on his list were private colleges paying merit scholarships of their skills, but there are public universities as well including the University of Nevada - Reno (which happens to be the alma mater of my grandfather), where 31% of students receive non-necessities based aid. In hundreds, Auburn University students apply for 6 elite scholarships ranging from $ 2,500 - $ 7,500 per year for four years.
Fellow Media program - rising junior full-time and older who are dedicated to pursuing a career in public policy advertising industry should consider the application of the Media Fellows Program. Through the Media Fellows Program, Washington Scholars Media Foundation awards $ 5,000 scholarships to five students who have an extraordinary achievement in their field and earn an average of at least 3.0.
Siemens Math, Science, and Technology Award Scholarships - to stimulate the growth of the best and brightest minds in mathematics, science, and technology, Siemens Corporation teamed up with the College Board and each year they hold regional science competitions for students high school. Regional winners are awarded $ 3,000 scholarships, but the national awards finalists range from a minimum of $ 10,000 to a maximum of $ 100,000 for the first place winner. Prestigious universities such as California Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Notre Dame hosting regional competitions that give exposure to students campuses.
Scholars KFCs Colonel Program - KFC scholarship is for students with an entrepreneurial spirit who have a financial need and are applying for a public college or university. This prize is worth up to $ 5,000 per year for four years. Because Colonel Sanders believes in the work ethic, it was certainly necessary to establish the original KFC, and this award requires students to work on average 10 hours per week from the second year of funding.
Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation - This foundation offers 250 scholarships annually based achievement for students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and who are thinking of attending a post-secondary accredited academic institution the USA. The top 50 are designated as national experts and will receive $ 20,000, remaining 200 are designated as Regional Scholars and receive awards of $ 10,000.
Davidson Institute for Talent Development - Only the extraordinary apply here. This scholarship is awarded to students 18 and under who have completed a significant part of the work is in mathematics, science, literature, music, technology, and philosophy. They also have an additional category which I'm sure Steve Jobs would have liked called "outside the box." The top prize is $ 50,000 followed by $ 25,000 and $ 10,000 awards at once for the top-notch students.
Bags Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society - Transfer students need funds too. Students who plan to transfer from community colleges to universities can find scholarships through this academic honor society using a standard application (available for members). There is a range of $ 1,000 prizes up to $ 7,500 Phi Theta Kappa bags partners, which include a broad variety of companies and foundations as GEICO, New Century, and Coca-Cola., Additional scholarship opportunities available to members Phi Theta Kappa range of up to US $ 30,000 per year.
Horatio Alger Fellowship Award - This scholarship honors the spirit of Horatio Alger, Jr., whose dime store young city life novels in poverty and excess overcoming adversity with uncommon courage and moral strength achieved great wealth and acclaim. This scholarship is awarded to students who have a financial need, they are high performance, and have overcome great adversity. The national winners of scholarships are awarded a $ 20,000 scholarship, and there are state grants to lower values.
Gallery Scholarship Collection - This $ 10,000 scholarship is awarded for the best talent. The competition is open to high school students as well as students currently enrolled in college who have a practical design touch. I say actual design because the donor is looking for original work, which can be used as a card (so it has to be attractive to its corporate clients and their customers.) This is one of those rare scholarships that students who are already in college can apply for. However, a student's average Texas education earned him the award in 2009 knocking out many college students.
Each and every one of these higher scholarships will be awarded to outstanding, hardworking, and well worth students. There is another option. However, that has not been mentioned - each of them has to turn in your application. No scholarships will be awarded to students who do not apply! Sometimes students feel they will not win the prize because there is such an impressive field of exceptional talent out there, then years later they realize these same amazing students were looking at them with the same thoughts. A message for the students, "Throw your hat in the ring."
