Looking for funds for you online degree? Try applying to this $1,000 grant

Online students can get scholarships just like any other learner

Online students are invited to apply to this $1,000 scholarship with a summer deadline offered by MyBioSource

There are many benefits of obtaining your degree online. Perhaps the biggest one is flexibility. What differentiates, for example a masters degree online from a traditional one is that you can complete the former at your own time. This way, students can hold on to jobs or spend more time with their families while completing their masters degree online.

While this might be the main reason why people choose online degrees, many learners also jump on board with an associate degree online or bachelor program because they are more cost-effective. However, you should expect drastically cheaper classes simply because you are enrolled with an associate degree online or masters one.

You will, however be able to save money you’d otherwise spend on housing, travelling and book materials and that’s an important aspect. Even so, you need to be aware that the published tuition and fees of both public and private institutions are on the rise. With the past few years, fees have gone up with an average of 14% and continue to do so.

So regardless of whether you’re going to school offline or online, you should start searching for scholarships as soon as possible. Even if online education is a bit friendlier on the wallet, it’s still quite expensive, especially if you haven’t anything saved up.

If that’s your case also, applying for scholarships and grants might be your only hope of paying for college, at least in part.

The first place to look for funding is with your online university. Access their website and see if they have anything listed or simply call their office and inquire in person. Or you could turn to the world wide web for help.

Just open up a browser on your desktop computer of laptop and start searching for scholarship opportunities. You’ll find they are all over the place and accept online students readily. Here’s an example of such a scholarship proposal.

MyBioSource is looking to award five awards annually to students who are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program with an accredited university at the time of the application.

While MyBioSources is a biotechnological products distribution company, the scholarship is open to students of all majors, although those enrolled with a STEM degree will certainly have an advantage. You’ll see why in a minute.

In order to apply for this scholarship, candidates are required to compose a 250-word essay in which they explain why they’ve chosen their specific college major and give reasons of why they should be awarded a scholarship.

They also have to fill out a form in which they provide details about the college they are attending, major of choice, as well as offer insights into their volunteer activities and any skills/experience/publications they might have in the STEM field. Here’s where being a STEM student might prove advantageous and will impress the judges.

You have until June 30, 2018 to apply, so you have plenty of time to come up with an interesting essay that will draw attention upon yourself.
