Scholarship Opportunities

Thinking about college can be very stressful for people who are planning on attending. One of the most stressful parts about thinking of college is the financial aspect. Depending on what college you attend, it can be very expensive. If you go to a community college it will be less expensive than if you attend a university. However, there are scholarships that you can apply for and win. Scholarships grant money to a student and all that money goes towards college. Here are a few different types of scholarships that can be applied for:
