Students need more money. That may be an obvious statement, but the fact is that money for college isn’t easy to come by, especially when budget cuts have caused universities and colleges to hike up tuition costs. There are lots of ways to get money for school, but students have a hard time believing that some of these ways will actually pay. YourTuition.com has made a place for itself among scholarship search sites, but it recently hit the magic number of 25,000 students who joined the site to find scholarships or grants through its massive database. With tons of information, daily updated scholarship blog and tips on finding financial aid, YourTuition.com has become a place to turn to for financial aid planning.
YourTuition.com was developed to provide all the details for any kind of financial aid, thus making the information more accessible to prospective students, current students, and even parents, who are trying to figure out the “college challenge,” that is paying for something that can change the future of a child without going into debt. Financial aid is the number one way that students offset debt when pursuing a higher education. Unfortunately, with tuition prices the way that they are, it can be difficult to stay motivated to the end if no back-up plan is available.
Recently, YourTuition.com has grown more active in finding scholarships and grants. Every day, scholarships with upcoming deadlines are posted, and each post includes information on how to apply, where to apply, and tips on how to make your application more successful. Some of the scholarships have prizes over $20,000, and other scholarships are even recurring, paying out each school year for the student who wins. The creators behind YourTuion.com saw the blog as one way to provide students with more than just the basic information but also how to write the better essay, fulfill all requirements and brainstorm award-winning projects. With that kind of information, students have continuously re-visited YourTuition.com to find out the latest scholarship news and see which new scholarships are available.
Another reason students visit YourTuition.com is because of the massive scholarship and grant database. Students can search over 1.7 million scholarships and find something that truly meets their interests or simply has an upcoming deadline that prompts them to apply that very day. Students just need to sign up to view all of the opportunities and take advantage of different services, including saving search profiles and getting notifications on new scholarships.
YourTuition.com also provides tuition information and student loan information so that any student can start planning for college as well, thus helping to overcome the college challenge. As YourTuition.com continues to add more ways to service its members, students have one more ally in the fight for a fair education.
