Associate degree students can earn a $10,000 scholarship

Write an essay for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship

Looking for money to fund your associate degree ventures? Try applying for the Wyzant grant

Thinking of starting your college journey but you don’t want to spend four full years studying a certain subject? Then you might want to consider associate degrees online or offline. Most offline online colleges or vocational schools will offer such degrees. But if you’re not in the clear about associate degrees, let us tell you a few things about them.

Associate degrees online or offline take around two years of full-time study to complete and are offered in a variety of subjects. A lot of students who graduate from an associate degree go on to transfer to four-year college programs, but some choose to transform it into an immediate career opportunity. So associate programs are perfect for those who want to enhance their career prospects without making a commitment to a longer four-year full-time degree.

Many associate degrees are offered in online format from traditional or online colleges alike, as well as during the evening and weekends. This allows for working adults with busy schedule to complete their education.

And with tuition soaring, many students are considering pursuing a more affordable associate degree instead of a four-year degree. You see community colleges and other institutions that offer two-year degrees often have lower tuition rates than universities offering bachelor degrees. But that doesn’t mean associate degrees don’t cost money. They do indeed and if you’re paying a mortgage or taking care of a child, you might not have the necessary funds to pay for such a degree.

That’s why associate degree students should try and find funding opportunities as soon as they can. While there aren’t many grants which specifically target those enrolled in associate degrees, there are many scholarships out there which welcome those currently attending a two-year program.

It could be a good idea to check with your college first whether they offer any scholarship of funding for students in financial need. Well in case this course of action does not work out, you could try an alternative route.

Try looking for easier to apply scholarships. Like the Wyzant Scholarship Contest. This program does not have many requirements to let you participate. Basically all you need to do is write an essay that answers this particular question: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Then you’ll be required to share your work on social media and acquire as much votes as you possibly can. Share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google+. The first 10 people with the highest number of community votes will be selected as finalists. Another 10 will be chosen by a panel of judges.

Wyzant Scholarship Contest awards a grand prize of $10,000, but other smaller scholarships worth $3,000 and $2,000 will also be awarded.

The essay should be 300-words or less and it should be focused on the topic at hand. Try to make a plan before starting writing. Once completed don’t forget to check that your essay addresses the question and fix and spelling or grammatical errors. It’s very important to submit a spotless essay.
