ANOTHER Scholarship

April 23rd, 2018 at 04:27 pm

Wow! My daughter is a money magnet. She has now received a scholarship for summer classes. It has the same name as the big scholarship she currently has, but she didn't receive it last summer. It is possible that was because she was half time, just one three credit hour class. This newest scholarship is worth $2,800. The total summer bill is $4,768. I was expecting just under $4,000, and have been saving monthly to pay this. I figured out that I didn't remember to add up all the fees, or to figure that one of the classes (a business class) is a higher tuition rate. So now our portion to pay, due June 12 is $1,968.

I also had her apply for a summer grant worth up to $1,400 for summer. I'm not sure she's actually eligible as an out of state student, but it let her apply. That, or a portion, would be very helpful.

I will keep the extra $2000 I will have saved by mid June for future college expenses. Although it is honestly tempting to put it into our Big Goal. Smile

    There should be great peace of mind for your daughter to not be taking out student loans that she would have to pay back later. I always tell students to apply for every grant and scholarship that they remotely qualify for. Any dollar you get as a grant or scholarship is another you don't have to pay back later.

    LAL, our daughter's are going to two different schools in two different states. The scholarships are not related. These recent ones mentioned have been received by our older daughter.
