OK, but *I'm* the parent ;-) 'Tis for my son.
Last year at my sons high school, the PTA awarded scholarships to all the kids who applied - because ONLY FIVE applied!
That's a good idea, I'll start turning over the rocks there.
I’m sorry - didnt’ catch the parent part. I’m ahead of you - but without a job! We’ve had to go the loan route this year - hope not to next year. Perseverance got us in-state tuition in Texas where my son was born and where his father still lives.
Seeing that estimate (and even the real deal) of the EFC is shocking! If you are touched by unemployment, there is an additional form to complete to adjust the EFC for that loss of income.
Good luck with your college bound kid! NOW is the time to start looking for scholarships... even “got milk” and duct tape scholarships. There are a few that you can apply to every week for a drawing - $1000 here and there adds up!
