The Thoroughbred Scholarship offers a $6,000 grant to students majoring in agriculture

Agriculture students can apply for a grant on the Race for Education website

Start your college journey the right way by enrolling with a scholarship program to help you put all your financial woes aside

As university online degree students know too well, paying for college is no easy feat. However, as you prepare to enroll with a traditional or distance learning degree, you must become aware that you need to explore all avenues and resources available such as scholarships, grants, tax credits and student loans.

But scholarships are always the best options – as you don’t have to pay them back. The optimal strategy to make sure you get a college sponsorship is to apply early for the best financial aid from a college, as many grants are handed out on a first come, first-served basis.

As a traditional student or university online degree one, you might also want to make sure, you find as many scholarship opportunities as humanly possible. Applying with frequency often maximizes the chances of earning a scholarship.

Also considering enrolling with a distance learning degree is also a solution, since tuition cost with online universities tend to be lower than at major universities. This choice will also spare you having to pay for room and boarding costs.

However, if you crave the true college experience, you might want to give scholarships a real shot. Start searching online and ask at your university of choice whether they offer any funding opportunities. Also keep into consideration that many foundations and corporations are also looking to sponsor promising students that are in financial need, so you might want to check with them also.

On top of that, there are scholarships that are targeted at specific segments of the population. Here’s an example – a student who has been living in foster care until the age of 18 and is interested in studying agriculture. If you fit into this category you are eligible to apply for the Thoroughbred Scholarship.

It sounds bizarre? It’s not. So make sure you search the web using your specific characteristics and the word “scholarship” attached to the query. So for example if you are an African American looking to study science, you can search like this “scholarships for African American in STEM”.

Anyway, going back to the Thoroughbred Scholarship. This program is targeted at students at least 24 years of age who are married or a veteran or an orphan or have dependents of his or her own.

You’ll need to offer proof that your annual household income is less than $75,000. On top of that a minimum GPA of 2.85 is required to be taken into consideration for this scholarship which awards $6,000 in funding.

You have until March 25, 2018 to apply for this scholarship, so you have plenty of time to get the documentation necessary to start your application.

The Thoroughbred Scholarship is offered through the Race for Education website, which is also host to a number of other scholarship opportunities like the Winstar Farm Scholarship which is looking to award up to $4,000 a year.

If you’re looking to pursue agriculture as a major, you can go ahead and access this website in order to see how to take advantage of these opportunities:
