College Scholarships and Financial Aid
Find the money to fund your degreeThere is a lot of money in scholarships out there, and while some are the typical merit-based award that most people think of (i.e., tied to grades), quite a few of them are not. Some are tied to where you live or what activities you’re involved in, what you want to do, or your family’s background. You may qualify for more of them than you think, opening up a wide array of opportunities. All it takes is a little bit of effort and a little bit of digging. At Minnesota School of Business & Globe University, we have our shovels ready to help you.
Where to startThere are a lot of search databases out there — FastWeb, collegescholarships.org — and they’re not a bad place to begin your search. But they’re not the end-all, be-all. If you’re a working professional looking to go back to school, a scholarship database heavily geared toward high school students may feel a bit off base. A lot of smaller, regional scholarships can add up in a big way, but they often get lost in those unwieldy databases. It’s better to start with a financial aid advocate on your side to help you uncover all your options.
