In the next five years, sixteen million high school students will graduate, making up the largest group of high school graduates in this country’s history. Those students who are fortunate enough to be on the honor roll or the star quarterback of the football team will have access to the best scholarships. But what will happen to the rest of them—those students who have the potential for a great college career, but not necessarily the financial backing to attend the school of their dreams? Author Kimberly Stezala passionately believes that every student should have access to a quality education. Now, she shows parents and their kids how to approach the scholarship process like a pro. Filled with inspiring advice from successful students and scholarship providers, Scholarships 101 shows aspiring college students how to: apply for those scholarships that are the best match for their profile and skills • create a scholarship application that will stand apart from the rest and impress the judges • find the buried treasure of scholarships that aren’t necessarily available on common websites • build a team of supporters in their scholarship quest Straightforward and savvy, this book provides the extra boost many students need to plan for their futures and receive the education they deserve.

This book can save you more than $100,000. These days, most people assume you need to pay a boatload of money for a quality college education. As a result, students and their parents are willing to go into years of debt and potentially sabotage their entire financial futures just to get a fancy name on their diploma. But Zac Bissonnette is walking proof that this assumption is not only false, but dangerous-a class con game designed to rip you off and doom your student to a post-graduation life of near poverty . From his unique double perspective-he's a personal finance expert (at Daily Finance) AND a current senior at the University of Massachusetts-Zac figured out how to get an outstanding education at a public college, without bankrupting his parents or taking on massive loans. Armed with his personal knowledge, the latest data, and smart analysis, Zac takes on the sacred cows of the higher education establishment. He reveals why a lot of the conventional wisdom about choosing and financing college is not only wrong but hazardous to you and your child's financial future. You'll discover, for instance, that: * Student loans are NOT a necessary evil. Ordinary middle class families can- and must-find ways to avoid them, even without scholarships. * College "rankings" are useless-designed to sell magazines and generate hype. If you trust one of the major guides when picking a college, you face a potential financial disaster. * The elite graduate programs accept lots of people with non-elite bachelors degrees. So do America's most selective employers. The name on a diploma ultimately won't help your child have a more successful career or earn more money. Zac can prove every one of those bold assertions - and more. No matter what your current financial situation, he has a simple message for parents: "RELAX! Your kid will be able to get a champagne education on a beer budget!"
