Transfer Scholarships

You did it! You were accepted by a great college – one that you’ve dreamt about since you were yay high, no less! You were over the moon, your parents were beaming with pride, and the rest of your family and friends showed their enthusiasm with high-fives all around! Fast-forward a year later and by all accounts your dream has been nothing short of an absolute nightmare. Or maybe your situation isn’t as climactic, if you began your college career at community college it may be the time for that leap to a university. Whichever scenario you identify with – surely these aren’t the only two – there are options and transferring is one of them.
