About Me - Monica Matthews, author of HOW TO WIN COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

Hello! I’m Monica Matthews and I am a former teacher and now stay-at-home mom of three boys. I’ve been happily married for over 29 years. My husband and I never seemed to have the extra money to start and contribute to college funds for our boys and before we knew it, our oldest was a senior in high school and we had no idea how we would pay for his college tuition. 

Panic mode set in!

Early in my son’s senior year of high school, I started reading everything I could get my hands on about how to win scholarships. I spent hours and hours doing scholarship research and realized that with thousands of students out there applying for scholarships, I needed to come up with a way to get my son’s applications to stand-out and get noticed by the judges. As a result, I created a method of applying for scholarships that was streamlined, clear, and easy-to-follow.

Soon, instead of rejection letters and emails, we started receiving letters stating that my son had WON many many scholarships. It was so exciting to check the mail each day! Because of my guidance and unique ideas, my son won over $100,000 in college scholarships! 

As I started telling my friends about my son’s scholarship success and a bit about my methods, I was told over and over again that I should write down these methods and publish them to help other parents in my same situation.

How Monica Matthews helped her son win over $100,000 in college scholarships.

So, that’s exactly what I did and How to Win College Scholarships was born! If you invest in my scholarship guide, I will save you the hours and hours of research that I did in order to come up with my methods of finding and winning scholarships.

In my PARENT guide, parents will learn how to help their students write winning essays, get great letters of recommendation, present scholarship application packets that get noticed by the judges, and so much more. Each guide is set up in 10 steps, outlining exactly what you, as a parent, can do to help your student as much as possible in their scholarship winning quest.

Students, if for some reason you do not have the support of your parents in your effort to win scholarships, my STUDENT guide will teach you everything you need to know about applying for and winning scholarships. 

It will give you exactly what you need to submit a scholarship application that you can be proud of!

My son has since graduated from college 100% debt-free and I truly feel this is a gift that I was able to give him as a result of our working together in the scholarship process. 

Endorsed by SmartCollegeVisit.com where I am the resident “College Scholarship Mom”, and many other trusted resources, my guides have proven to be a valuable tool for both students and their parents in the college scholarship process.

You and your students CAN win college scholarships and my methods will help you and guide you along the way.
