Margo M.  on 1/5/2018 10:18:40 PM

I entered this contest a couple of months ago (maybe 2) and my poem was within the top 2% of all poems across the nation that were submitted. My poem won in the "My World" division, and will be published in one of their books. I highly recommend entering this, because it was a lot of fun to be able to write my own poem!

Brendan H  on 12/21/2017 1:42:44 PM

It's always worth a shot!

Avoid Student Debt at Colleges with No Student Loans

February 25, 2021

by Izzy Hall

Here at Scholarships.com, we connect students with scholarships that can help alleviate the amount of student loans they need to take out to pay for college. But there are colleges out there that offer students such generous financial aid packages that they need to take out very little in loans if at all. These “no student loans” colleges replace student loans in financial aid packages with additional scholarships and grants to help fund a student’s tuition. Students accepted into these schools will pay much less than the cost of tuition and thus will not be as burdened with student debt. [...]
