List the reasons why you should be awarded a scholarship and win this $1,500 grant

Save up for college with this easy to apply to scholarship

In order to gather the necessary amount of money to pay for college you need to apply to more than one scholarship opportunity

For a lot of people, restrictions on time and money will make going to school in the traditional sense impossible. But with the rise of online degree program institutions, it’s now easier and more affordable than ever to go to school and earn a degree – no matter in which part of the world you live in.

On top of that, we bet you didn’t know about accelerated degrees. These are online bachelor degree programs which help students shave months (sometimes even years) off the time it usually takes to graduate with a full degree.

It might not be openly advertised, but online degree program-offering establishments offer numerous opportunities to earn a degree quickly like for example, accelerated class schedules that help you finish a semester’s worth of study in just a few weeks. At some online bachelor degree providers, you can get college credits in exchange for work or military experience.

But even if you will be able to get your degree faster than at traditional college, you should also consider the fact that enrolling a bachelor degree online can often get lonely and requires a lot of self-motivation, time management and commitment. Consider before jumping on board with an online program whether you have what it takes to go through four years of going to school online.

Once you have made the decision you truly want to pursue an online degree, you need to start worrying about another aspect – the financial one. Obviously, you will need to pay for your college degree as it does not come for free. Given that university costs are very high these days; you need to be preoccupied to find alternative ways to pay for college.

One of the best is scholarships. These money grants don’t have to be paid back once you graduate and you can apply for more than one at the same time. The more the merrier.

Start your scholarship search early to make sure you secure at least one funding opportunity. Apply early and apply frequently.

How do you determine which scholarships are right for you? You search a lot and you read carefully the eligibility criteria. You will find you won’t be able to apply for some because of various reasons. Some might require you to have a minimum GPA while others are targeted only at female students or those looking to become engineers. The thing you need to remember – there aren’t two scholarships alike in this world and it’s important you find the ones who are right for you as an individual.

Here’s a quick funding example. Scholarship website Unigo is offering a $1,500 to students who can create a list of ten reasons why they believe they should be awarded the scholarship (in 250 words or less).

Students who are at least 13 years of age are invited to impress the panel of judges with their creativity, thoughtfulness and sensibility. You have until December 31, 2017 to apply for this grant.
