$how Me the MONEY


$how me the MONEY…

Need money for college? It is actually simpler to find than you may think! The problem isn’t that the money isn’t out there, but rather that most students don’t know where to look. Here’s the sad truth:  there are literally MILLIONS of dollars in scholarships available each year for students’ education, but most students never apply for it. Why? They don’t even know it’s out there. We are here to change that. Every month, check out my “scholarships” page where I’ll feature some of the top scholarships that you can apply to easily.
