Every year about $2.9 billion dollars of scholarships are left unclaimed by students in American high schools.

While some may assume that a person must be an athlete in order to receive a scholarship, that is certainly not true. There are many scholarships available for all students with different interests talents or interests outside of sports.

The definition of a scholarship is a grant or payment made to help student’s education. The requirements can differ depending on what scholarship a person applys for.

Money may not be important right now, however, when you start college you need to pay for: housing, books, food and of course, tuition. In an article by Scholarship & Grants for Colleges, it states that “each year, an estimated of $46 billion” is granted to students from the U.S. Department of Education or from colleges and universities. In other words, the possibilities are endless.

If you are ever curious about where this money comes from, it comes from the federal government, state or colleges  universities, cooperations and sometimes, individuals. This means you do not need to pay back the money you receive. It is yours.

So what types of scholarships are there? Well, it depends on what you are looking for. There are some scholarships available depending on your major (interest), grade level, or where you come from.

Beware, never pay for a scholarship. The application should be free. If it is not, then it is a scam. Period.

You can always visit Gdoinez Fundamental’s Higher Ed Center to see what opportunities are available. As a matter of fact, if you are looking for a specific scholarship, talk to your counselor or Higher Ed Coordinator Jimmy Bravo.

Here are some scholarships and links that provide different kinds of scholarships available for students:
