I really want you to succeed in achieving your education goals!
It’s not easy, but the investment in yourself and furthering your education is worth the reward so never give up on your dreams.
Today, I wanted to briefly go over 4 Myths that prevent people from receiving any scholarships or education grants.
Myth #1 – Only poor students get grants
There are many scholarships that are not need-based, so you should not be quick to assume that your family income will prevent you from getting scholarships or education grants.
Myth #2 – My race is holding me back from getting a scholarship
While it is true that some scholarships are based on race, I would say that there are far more other private scholarships out there that are based on merit or other criteria so it is important to explore ALL your options.
Myth #3 – You have to be a great essay writer to get one
This myth is completely false.
What you write in your essays required by some funding programs out there carries more weight than how you write it.
Your capability to follow the instructions and address the essay questions is often ore crucial to your success than how eloquently you write.
Myth #4 – You have to be a high school student to win a scholarship.
Again, this myth is not true.
Many scholarships are for undergraduate students and those no longer in school at all. The are also scholarships for graduate students. You definitely don’t need to be in high school to qualify.
I hope this posts helps to eliminate some myths you may have held true about your potential to receive scholarships or other financial aid options.
They are many opportunities out there, you just need to know where to find them.
