Getting More Scholarship Money!!

September 22, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

"I'm afraid I won't have enough money to go to college." 

 

Ever hear that? Have you said it? 

 

Here's the deal...there is money that is not being accessed and YOU need to take advantage of that! No...it will not drop on your doorstep. You do have to do a little work. But check this out...

 

A freshman at TWU explained to me yesterday (September 21, 2014) that she was in the top 10% of her graduating class. Her best friend called her to tell her there is a scholarship for top 10% students. She told him she didn't have time to do it. She had to study. He kept calling until she finally said, "Fine! I'll do it!" He even emailed her a letter (which I'm giving you right here!) that she could send to her financial aid advisor to see if she qualified. It took her all of about 3 minutes. The very next day her counselor emailed back and said her award letter had been corrected and they added $1000 to her financial aid package! ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!!

 

How many of you have made $1000 in 3 minutes??? I know I haven't...and, more than likely, never will! 

 

The student who told me this still needs to pay $2600 per semester. She worked 40 hours a week for an entire summer and earned about $2000. Yet, with a 3 minute email, she was able to get $1000. 

 

Even if you're not in the top 10%, colleges may have some extra money. Now is the time to go visit your financial aid counselor and see! It never hurts to ask...and if 3 minutes...or even 30...can result in $500, $1000, or more, it will be the easiest money you ever make!

 

Letter to Financial Aid Advisor

To: FinAid

Subject: Top 10% scholarship

 

Hello, this is Jane Doe (School ID: 1111111).

 

I have questions concerning the top 10% scholarship. I was wondering why I did not receive that scholarship. I attended high school here in Texas and graduated top 10% of my class at (Name of School) High School.

 

I appreciate your help in advance, thank you. I hope to hear back from you soon.
