Homeschoolers often ask how they can get scholarships to college. The good news is that there are thousands of sources for school funding, and many of them either seek out homeschoolers or welcome all students to apply. Here is a brand new scholarship search site that is kicking off with a $1000 prize for an essay contest.
We wanted to let you know about a new scholarship program for your students. The $1,000 MoolahSPOT Scholarship is a short essay-based program that is open to students starting at age 16. Family income, test scores and financial need are not a consideration. The award may be used for any education-related expenses such as tuition, fees, books and room and board. The deadline for applying is February 28, 2010 and applications are currently being accepted.
This scholarship is sponsored by MoolahSPOT (www.moolahspot.com) a free scholarship search engine that launched this past summer. The website is free to use and we encourage you to try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, and we wish your students the best of luck!
P.S. If you found MoolahSPOT helpful we’d really appreciate a link. If you do place a link, please send us an email and we’ll send you some free scholarship resources as a “thank you.”
