Once you’re accepted into college, one
of the most pressing issues is how you’re going to pay for it. Still, after
filling out countless applications, the last thing you want to do is fill out
even more complicated forms and write long essays for scholarships.
While many require you to do exactly
that, some scholarships don’t require much effort to apply. Just remember that
you aren’t the only one taking this approach, so your competition will likely
be plentiful for these scholarships.
Students across the country, and all over North Carolina,
are applying to college. The college application process is exciting,
stressful, and even overwhelming for many students and their parents. Of course,
the process doesn’t end when applications are sent off. After applications are
submitted it’s time for parents and students to start thinking about how
they’re going to pay for school.
Scholarships are easily one of the best ways for students
and families to pay for school.
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.
The price tag for college may seem daunting, but, in comparison with many other states, you’ll find North Carolina’s colleges and universities reasonably priced. Plus, a number of North Carolina residents planning to attend an in-state school benefit from North Carolina scholarships, grants, and other programs to help cover college costs.
To be considered for North Carolina scholarships or grants, you’ll need to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) first.
