Perhaps you have asked these questions if you are a homeschool parent or student:
- How can we afford college?
- What is the best way to get scholarships?
- When can we carve out the time to find the college money and do the applications?
For some homeschoolers, the high school senior year is already very intense, and adding all the college applications and the scholarship search to the list can create a mountain of work. It is true, it does take a lot of dedicated effort to land enough financial awards to make schooling affordable, but there are resources to help ease the pain of the process.
College Depot was created a few years ago to do exactly that. It is a one-stop center for getting information and resources necessary for the college application process, including the financial aid piece. Located in the Burton Barr Library in downtown Phoenix, the center is filled with computers and programs for helping students
- discover career paths
- explore suitable colleges
- find and apply for great scholarships
- understand the college admissions process
Printed information, workshops and consultations with knowledgeable staff will give homeschool families a huge boost in being equipped for the trials of getting into college. The featured session this month is a Scholarship Workshop.
