Scholarships

Reducing the number of credits your teen has to take once enrolled will ALWAYS save you money before you even start college, but once there, apply for scholarships!  When I suggest applying for scholarships, I don’t mean a couple the year before college starts – I mean WEEKLY every day that your teen is enrolled!! Most scholarships are open to prospective AND enrolled students.

Please visit and subscribe to Jessica’s site JLV College Counseling. Despite the professional site name, it’s not a business- it’s a free resource and my favorite place to find scholarships for my own sons.  She’s an expert in this area, and my mini-list comes from her site!
