Last week we shared our weekly scholarship schedule with you to help you structure the time you devote to scholarships. View a downloadable copy of our weekly scholarship schedule at: http://tinyurl.com/zo92se8.
For the next six weeks we will teach you how to use each “Task” to your advantage. The focus of this week’s blog is “Plan.”
The plan stage is all about selecting the resources that will help you earn the funds you need.
Resources are everywhere. Your local guidance counselor is a resource. Your parents/guardians are a resource. Your network is a resource. And of course, the internet is a resource.

Our last blog post should have inspired you to prepare for the success you will have in 2017! This post includes one of the many tools we will give you to succeed in your scholarship journey.
We created a weekly scholarship schedule to help you plan and monitor the time you devote to scholarships. Incorporating scholarships into your busy schedule will bring you one step closer to achieving your goal of graduating debt-free.
Scholarships can open a door to financial freedom, provide opportunities to explore life, and change the trajectory of your future.
You’re probably aware of the rising costs of a college education and the consequent average debt of a college graduate, but that doesn’t have to be your story. Loans are an option, but they aren’t the only option.
Imagine working a minimum wage job for a couple of hours and earning $15.00. That’s ok. But imagine devoting a couple of hours to a scholarship and earning $1,000. The latter sounds better, doesn’t it?
Of course it does, especially with a return on investment (ROI) of $1,000. That’s $500 per hour! Guess what…scholarships aren’t taxable. That means you can put all of the money you earn towards your education instead of a portion of it (after you pay Uncle Sam).
