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.
