The junior year is such a pivotal time in high school, and it’s imperative that students take the proper steps to focus their efforts when researching and pursuing college scholarships.
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Horizon Scholarship Services is excited to offer a new Scholarship Prep Program to help high school juniors better position themselves to obtain college scholarships when they graduate.
The program will focus on specific areas that students should address during their junior year in order to be in the strongest position to win scholarships, grants and other aid to fund their college education. Some of the important aspects that Horizon will focus on include leveraging the SAT or ACT, maintaining high academic standards, building a strong student resume, researching colleges and scholarship opportunities, and targeting the most appropriate types of scholarships.
“The junior year is such a pivotal time in high school, and it’s imperative that students take the proper steps to focus their efforts when researching and pursuing college scholarships,” said Tracy Barbour, principal of Horizon Scholarship Services. “Our Scholarship Prep Program is designed to help students optimize their efforts during the school year as well as next summer, so they can win the most scholarship funds in the shortest amount of time and with the least amount of effort.”
Program participants will also receive a complimentary report entitled You Can Afford to Attend College, which includes valuable tips and resources to support their educational goals. The report addresses important topics such as why/how students can afford to go to college, how to effectively compete for scholarships, and scholarship/grant opportunities that students can use at any institution they choose.
Horizon Scholarship Services specializes in providing research, consulting and other resources to help high school students obtain grants and scholarships to fund their college education. Horizon seeks to augment the services of high school guidance counselors who are often limited on the amount of time and assistance they can provide students. By providing in-depth research, information and expert advice, Horizon makes the scholarship application process faster, easier and more productive for students.
The Scholarship Prep Program is available free of charge; however, students will need to contact Horizon by September 30 to register for the program.
