Maximize your chances to get funding by applying to this $1,000 scholarship

If you want a scholarship you have to apply for lots of them

Scholarships are the easiest way to pay for college, but if you want to get one you’ll have to put in some work

You know what’s the biggest mistake a person looking to enroll with an offline or online college degree can do? It’s not to apply for a scholarship.

Even before you step into the online education classroom or campus, you need to start applying to college scholarships. And avoid getting into a mindset which dictates you won’t be able to get funding. That’s simply just not true. We want to make one thing clear here: anyone, yes anyone can win a scholarship.

As a prospective student of a traditional or online college degree, you should know it does not matter what kind of background you have or whether you have a spotless academic record or not. All you need to succeed is to have a solid system in place. Before starting to apply to various scholarships, you need to remember a few things. Applying for grants to fund your offline or online education is a journey. It’s highly unlikely you will succeed from the first go, but if you’re proactive, persistent and willing to build an infrastructure to scale you will eventually succeed.

A lot of people start applying for scholarships hoping they will manage to win a scholarship for college. But you need to transform this mindset into something else entirely. You need to think to yourself, I hope I get multiple scholarships. Why do we say that? Because, despite the abundance of grants out there, most scholarships usually award between $1,000 and $3,000 in funding.

While this is a pretty decent amount of money, you will certainly need more if you’re hoping to cover all your educational fees. With that in mind, you’re going to have to apply to as many scholarships as you humanly can.

Be sure to record all of the scholarships you’ve found in a document or Excel spreadsheet so you can easily monitor them and also to make sure you don’t apply for the same program twice. With such a system in place, you’ll be able to secure funding a lot faster.

And to get you started on the right track, we’ll share with you a scholarship opportunity which you might want to take into consideration. It’s called the C.I.P. Scholarships and is offered by the College is Power website.

It’s targeted at students or perspective students who are at least 17 years of age. The neat thing about this scholarship is that it allows more atypical student categories to apply to it. Just tick the adult/non-traditional student category in the Application form and you’re good to go.

The application form also require you fill in info about your career goal and what type of degree you’re looking to earn. You also have to mention whether you’re expecting to complete it online or not.

Last but not least, in 150-words or less answer the following question: “What’s is your primary goal for going to school?”

Successful applicants will receive a $1,000 scholarship. College is Power welcomes entries three times a year and the next deadline is set for December 31.
