One mother asked me about scholarships. Sometimes people think our full tuition scholarship means that college is free for us - it isn't! We still have to pay for room and board, books and supplies. The good news is that even when you get a full tuition scholarship, you can get other awards as well.
I have one son who gets engineering scholarships, and another that gets economics & business scholarships. They also both got small awards from a small community scholarship.
It's not just genius-types that get good scholarships. I know students going to college with my boys who aren't as academically gifted. They pay only $3000 PER YEAR for the same school - in reality, less than us! With many need-based scholarships, they have a variety of grants and scholarships that provide for most of the cost of college. The key is matching your student to the college.
Watch my "BIG Scholarships" video, and aim toward a college that will pay you money to go there.
