What many people don’t realize is that there is an abundance of scholarships available for students, and many of these scholarships are awarded based on merit. Merit can include GPA, athletic ability, volunteering, career interest, religious affiliation, a unique talent, and so much more. The reality is that there is a lot of free money available to students if they just understand how to look for it and what they need to do to qualify.

Nancy provides an overview of the scholarship process and gives powerful strategies that can greatly help in pursuing scholarship opportunities. You can learn more about Nancy at www.ThreeWishesScholarships.com.
