Its time for another Daily Scholarship and Financial Aid Tip in about two minutes, by JR The College Money Man
This is episode 38 and today we are talking about How To Find Scholarships Where Others Don’t Look;
Recently while doing some “student on the street” interviews about experiences with paying for college, I met Jasmine, a student who found most of the money she needed for college through her fathers employer.
Many students these days rareley look offline for scholarships. Of course this is a bad idea, because so many valuable and high paying scholarships can be found right in a students own neighborhood, or a students own home through a parents employer. Jasmine learned this lesson, and while the government didn’t pick up the tab for much of her education, her fathers employer did. So take the time to check with employers to see if a scholarship program is one of the benefits offered by your company. It may lead to another source of financial aid for your college age student.
