A Practical  Guide to Scholarships (US distance higher education)

Scholarships are a form of financial aid awarded to students to further their education based on any number of different criteria; scholarships usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. This online guide explains the different types of scholarships that can provide financial assistance to advance your education – especially if you are interested in accredited higher education from a  USA.

For prospective college students, there is no doubt a great deal of excitement, expectation, and, of course, trepidation about where they are headed. Scholarships are a major part of the college prep, and while they are often regarded as overwhelming and confusing — something students don’t even want to bother with — they don’t have to be.
