Personalized Scholarship Search

Part of my job is to help parents find scholarships for college. Kim had an unmotivated art student, with little available resources for college. I did a two hour telephone interview with the student, to determine her strengths and interests. Then I spent six more hours searching the internet for available scholarships. I found 34 scholarships and arranged them by due date, with instructions for the student. Because I knew the student so well after the interview, I was able to make suggestions on how to make the process easier. I was also able to find a community college near her home that offered a AA degree in Fine Arts, as a back up plan.

Kim writes: "We're kind of stunned. [Our daughter] is working at a different level this year and has been motivated and shown initiative and good time and stress management. I think it really helped to work with you on scholarships - it gave her some structure and made the whole college thing real."

If you want help searching for scholarships, let me know. I would be glad to help!
