We probably don’t need to tell you that college is expensive but did you know that the average annual cost of college for an in-state, public university is about $31,000*? This includes tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation and miscellaneous other costs. That hurts just thinking about it! However, the education you receive will set you apart from other job seekers post-grad, as well as give you valuable life experiences, and help pave the way for your future success.
College isn’t for everyone but if you are heading that direction, wouldn’t you like to have a little extra money to help out? Applying for scholarships can help you cover some of your college expenses.
College scholarships are important because:
- As you can see, college is expensive!
- Your parents need the financial help.
- It’s a chance to minimize your student loan debt.
