How to Get Scholarship Offers

How to Get Scholarship Offers

How would you feel if your child sent out 7 college applications and got these results?

  • 7 applications sent
  • 2 colleges offered half-price
  • 1 college offered quarter-price
  • 1 college offered full tuition
  • And, they haven't even heard from all their colleges yet!

Read what Jeanette said in her own words!

I just wanted you to know that my son sent out seven applications, and we now know he has been accepted to all seven. We are still waiting on some financial information from three of them, but out of the four that we do have financials on: two would be half priced; one school offered him the in-state tuition rate with a scholarship on top of that making it about a quarter of the cost; and another offered a scholarship that would cover his entire tuition, books and fees - he'd only pay room and board (this school's price tag is 54,000 a year). I knew we gave him an excellent education, I just didn't know how to document it. So, I wanted to say a HUGE thank you and buy you a cup of coffee. I will continue to let others know about your helpful resources, and pray that God continue to bless you, your family, and your business. ~ Jeanette

Thank you SO MUCH to Jeanette for the coffee! She is definitely speaking my love language! My husband and I take a 2 hour walk most days, stopping midway for coffee, and discuss how we can best help parents homeschool high school. Coffee is the motivation for what we do!

I don't know Jeanette well, I just saw her online at many of my free classes, and I know she picked up the free books that I offer as well. So here is what I do know about Jeanette.

  • She takes continuing education seriously in her homeschool​.
  • She was engaged in the process​.
  • She worked hard​.
  • She achieved amazing success!

And for those of you wondering how to get scholarships, here is what I suggest.

  1. Apply to 4-8 colleges​.
  2. Apply to public and private universities​.
  3. Apply to reach, fit, and safety schools​.
  4. Learn about college admission and scholarships.
  5. Take continuing education classes to become a better home educator​.

Being engaged in the process can make it possible to achieve a debt-free college education!

  • How Many APs Should My Student Take?

    Don't get caught up in the AP hype. You don't need a million APs in high school . In fact, you really shouldn't have too many  APs . All tests and no fun make a dull teen. A recent study of 400,000 entrants to about 100 colleges proves that high school sanity reigns supreme.
