Calling all parents and teens! The hunt is on for free money... yes- you read correctly. Scholarships are free money that students earn for college.
Did you know that it takes at least three weeks to put together an outstanding scholarship application? Applicants need time to fill out the forms without errors (spelling and grammar must be perfect), contact a representative for a recommendation letter (this person can be a teacher or mentor), draft an engaging essay (must be inspirational and highlight unique vision) and then let's not forget about ample time to mail off the application in time to beat the deadline. There is so much to consider, but guess what- you're not alone. We are here to help. Stop by Urban Parenting Magazine each week to check out a new scholarship offered locally or nationally. Then e-mail us your questions and we'll be glad to help where we can. Here's another scholarship feature to get you started:
