I will graduate from a high school in Western PA this coming June. I plan to attend either CCAC or IUP in the fall to further my passion of nursing. I am seeking extra financial help to minimize my debt. I'm interested in any scholarships that might make my education less expensive, while helping as many people as I can along the way!

I am applying for this scholarship because I have 7 siblings. 5 of my siblings have autism and I am the first child who does not have this disorder. I need some help getting to college because I am the first one going to college and this will help me get a jump start on my career plans! Thank you very much for this opportunity! - Erik W.

I just started at All State Career School. I applied for FASFA and even received a grant towards my CDL course. Unfortunately, they don't cover everything. I am responsible for $150 a month for the next six months. It may not seem like a lot too most, but I volunteer 40 hours a week at a homeless shelter to pay for my stay there. I'm a single father of three trying to turn my life around. I'm concerned I will lose my chance to better not only my life but my children's lives due to lack of payment.

University to Give New Students Free Laptops for Filing the FAFSA

April 6, 2021

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus made laptops a necessity for college students. Where before students without personal computers or laptops could use on-campus computers and provided software to meet the technological needs of their courses, the shift last spring to online classes necessitated that students have a stable internet connection and a compatible device. While the majority of students were able to meet this requirement, according to a study by EDUCASE, some students found themselves without a modern laptop that could run the most up-to-date browser, use RAM-heavy software or keep up even with reliable high-speed Wi-Fi. One university has announced a unique remedy for this technical situation. [...]

March 31, 2021

by Izzy Hall

Getting waitlisted is a normal part of the college admissions process, but some experts say that this year the wait list could turn into the longest it has ever been.
