Scholarships
Scholarship money is out there and in many instances, simply available just for the asking. Students must be DELIBERATE

American students just aren’t applying.
Here are a few websites to share with your sons so that they can apply to one or many of the scholarships. As with all
applications, be mindful of personal information and your son should never pay a fee in order to apply for a scholarship.

      an appointment to assist in correcting the problem
