Scholarship Awards

There’s a commonly held belief among students that most scholarship awards listed on scholarship websites are going to be paltry sums of $50 to $200 that might not even cover the cost of a Biology 101 textbook. Other students believe that the only substantial scholarships out there are scholarships for minorities or other unusual scholarships that will leave average students with no way to pay for school.
