It is 2015 and college isn’t getting any cheaper. According to data collected by Bloomberg, the cost of college is increasing at a rate faster than inflation, and is projected to continue increasing. What is more, it is getting even more difficult to find your way into a steady career without a college degree. The result is that more than two-thirds of college students are graduating with student loan debt—at an average of about 25,000 a pop according to The College Board. The best solution for future and current college students is to spend more time and energy looking for scholarships.
Scholarships aren’t limited to athletes and overachievers. There are scholarships around for just about every niche of people. The trick is to look hard and find scholarships that are suited for your skillset and experience. If you think there aren’t any scholarships out there for you, think again. For example, are you a Star Trek fan, have an affinity for duck calling or just so happen to be of Norwegian descent? Better yet, are you good with duct tape? If you answered yes to any of those, then it might help you get into college. Seriously. Read on to find out more!
