College is more of a necessity than ever to be successful in the workforce. Everyone agrees you need a college education, but they have a harder time figuring out how to pay for it. College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) seeks to raise awareness among students and their families of available scholarships and grants. When you look at the math, taking the time to apply for scholarships is a no-brainer when it comes to college.

Maybe you work a summer job as a short-order cook at a fast food restaurant because you need to earn money. Maybe you work a summer internship at a local television station because you’re interested in a career in video production.
