We were overwhelmed by the number of applications we received in the past few months. We expect the number of applicants to only grow since many state and private student loan organizations have reduced the amount of money they are awarding due to the recent credit crunch
Boston, MA (Vocus) September 3, 2008
AchieveYourScholarship.com, which was launched in January 2008, has selected a scholarship winner. Judy Cain from Fresno, CA is the recipient of the $1,500 college scholarship, which was created to help students pursue their educational goals and offset the high cost of secondary education.
Jonah Mytro, Director at mediaspike, Inc. and the man behind Achieveyourscholarship.com, commented that it was created in an effort to help out students who were having trouble finding college student loans or college scholarships. “We noticed that the amount of money being given away to students in the form of financial aid and loans has been going down,” says Mytro, “so we decided to create a scholarship that anyone could apply to. It’s a way to help out students who are struggling to pay for their education, whether they’re earning online degrees or a certificate to get ahead in their career.”
AchieveYourScholarship.com has launched their next scholarship contest and will be choosing a winner on September 31st, 2008. “We were overwhelmed by the number of applications we received in the past few months. We expect the number of applicants to only grow since many state and private student loan organizations have reduced the amount of money they are awarding due to the recent credit crunch,” says Mytro in reference to the 20,000 plus submissions that were received.
“Achieveyourscholarship.com is a very valuable college financial resource on the Internet. Today the cost of college is rising and many students find it difficult to reach their goal of a college degree. It is assuring to know that there is financial help out there for students to help meet their college expenses,” states Judy Cain, who is currently attending National University and earning a bachelor degree in accounting. She plans to use the scholarship to purchase books and pay for school expenses for the fall semester.
