Minority online students can take advantage of this $5,000 grant
Just because you study online, doesn’t mean you can’t get money for college
Online students actively seeking funding for their online degrees, can apply to the program offered by Guides to Online Schools
Saving money for college can be an incredibly hard task, but high tuition rates shouldn’t keep students from enrolling with a program at their offline or online universities. While financial concerns might put you off from chasing your dream at first, you should start considering grants for school as an alternative method to pay for college.
Surely, we’d all sleep better at night if we had a million dollars in our bank account and we’d be able to use some of that money to pay for the tuition which comes from applying to traditional or online universities. But we live in the real world and in the real world not many students can go to university without applying to grants for school.
Online students might have smaller fees to worry about compared to their traditional counterparts, but that doesn’t mean making the payment won’t put a big whole in their budget. That’s why applying for scholarships should be turned in one of your main priority after you have been accepted into an online university program.
And we have some good news for you – as an online student you are part of a group of students who attends classes in the virtual environment. Hence there are some scholarship opportunities that are specifically designed for students who are in the process of completing their educational online.
For example, Guide to Online School is home to two scholarship opportunities. The Community College scholarship targets students enrolled in a public community college, junior college, technical college or city college and who are currently working towards getting a diploma or degree.
The grant is worth $2,000 and will be awarded to a student who can best respond two personaland thought provoking questions in 300 to 500 words.
- How will you apply your degree in the future? What do you anticipate for your first five years outside of college?
- State any special personal or family circumstances affecting your need for financial assistance.
You have until October 15 to apply for this scholarship.
The second scholarship awarded by Guide to Online Schools is one aimed at Minority students. You’ll have to be enrolled in a private or public school and working towards graduating with a diploma. On top of that you have to be part of one of these ethnic groups: Alaska Native, American Indian, Asian-American, Black (African-American), Hispanic American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.
This time Guide to Online Schools will award a more generous $5,000 scholarship, but students also have to answer the same two questions we listed above in order to be eligible to receive the money.
You have until December 31, 2017 to apply for this grant, so if you too are part of a minority don’t hesitate to apply for this scholarship.
Guide to Online Schools previously offered may other scholarships including the Make a Difference Scholarship which asked students to explain how they would change the world and the Military Scholarships.
