  1. I am receiving Social Security Disablilty Income. I know there are some resources from the government that are available to me, but I am incredibly confused about what is what. They have a PASS plan, Division Vocational Rehab, PITA, and others, but I am so confused and lost trying to figure out what I qualify for and what is right for me. I’m not sure if you know anything about this stuff.

  2. How can I get a fast and easy scholarship? I,ve been on sites like scholarship points but it seem like no matter how many points I put in I don’t never win, and I have to end up starting all back over the next month earning points all over again. Plus some of these other site You gotta have a a long list like a high GPA, and be a leader in the commmunity, and tons of other stuff to get a scholarship. So is there scholarship for average guys like me who nreally need the extra money to pay for classes, or books.

      Hello Sharol,

      Thank you for your question. Its important to remember that sites such as ScholarshipPoints are only one piece of a larger puzzle. A few questions to help clarify a few things to give you a more accurate diagnosis and help:

      1) Did you fill out the FAFSA this year?
      2) If so, what was your EFC
      3) What school are you attending or planning to attend
      4) What other sites have you searched so far?
      5) Have you looked “off-line” at scholarship books at the library?
      6) What scholarships have you applied for?
      7) What is your GPA?
      8) Have you been to your schools scholarship or foundation office
      9)DO you have ANY extracurricular activites you take part in? If not, do you currently work either part of full time?
      Regards
