A scholarship can make a big difference in my education. The money from a scholarship helps by allowing me to be more selective in how I spend my free time. I'll be able to maximize the college experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities and internships. This scholarship is a blessing for me, number one. It means a lot because not only is it helping me with college and I'm very honored to be getting the award. My career goals are teaching psychology ; that is what I will be majoring in. With this scholarship and the need-based grants I have been awarded, I can complete my education and continue to solve problems within my community. These are the areas I plan to serve. I am grateful to be considered for this scholarship opportunity, and should I be selected, I will use it to advance my physiologist education. I appreciate your consideration, and I look forward to building a lasting relationship with your organization.

Free College? Check Out These Tuition-Free Schools!

October 15, 2020

by Izzy Hall

At Scholarships.com, we help students find scholarships to pay for college tuition. But what if you didn’t have to pay tuition? There are a handful of schools in the U.S. that are tuition-free, meaning that while students may have to pay for room and board or meal plans, they do not have to pay tuition to attend the college. On the flip side, tuition-free schools may require students to work alongside their studies or, for military academies, to enlist upon graduation. [...]
