There’s an urban legend that says, “80% of scholarships and bursaries are never applied for by students.” Why? Many students believe they need to be straight ‘A’ students in order to apply for and receive financial awards. This is simply not true. Many awards are based on financial need, community service or area of study. The key? Take the time to research and apply for awards. You never know … and sometimes even $500 can be the difference between KD and Mr. Noodles for a semester and real food!
