A National Challenge
Too many kids hear their parents talk about how expensive college is and as a result kids are stressing out more about college related expenses then their parents. According to Sallie Mae’s national study How America Pays For College 2016; students are more likely than parents to feel any type of expense-related stress. Almost twice as many students as parents (39% and 20%, respectively) report feeling stressed over educational expenses.
There is a misunderstanding about scholarships. You may think all scholarships are financial need based, you don’t know what resources are available or you think your kid has to be a junior or senior in high school before they can start applying.
The 30 Day Scholarship Challenge is designed to teach you the truth about the financial aid process. It is also designed so that at the end of 30 days your kid will have a list of scholarships they can apply to. Learn more about The Scholarship Challenge.
Wait, How Do You Help Kids Make Better Career Choices?
Have you heard the saying “If a goal isn’t written down it is just a wish?” If your kid has not written down their education and career goals, so they are just wishes. I don’t want your family to go into student and parent loan debt on wishes because your kid never took the time to write down their education and career goals.
So, How Do You Get Kids To Write Down Their Education And Career Goals?
When kids are worried about how expensive college is and they are stressing out about how to afford it, they are open to the idea of applying to scholarships. The process of applying to scholarships starts an education and career conversation. The most frequently asked question on scholarship applications is “What are your education and career goals?” When kids apply to scholarships they are writing down their education and career goals.
Kids learn to make better career choices when they join an active community of ambitious peers who working towards their dream career. The ongoing active involvement helps them become “crystal clear” on their education and career goals. As a result they represent themselves better and give themselves a competitive advantage. If you would like to give your kid a competitive advantage then start by learning about the financial aid system and what resources are available. This will help you have a conversation with your kid about scholarships. To make this process simple and easy join The Scholarship Challenge.
