If at First You Don’t Succeed…
To achieve college scholarship success, students need to NOT give up! Keep reading…
If at first you don’t succeed…Try Try Again!
As much as I would like to tell you otherwise, you won’t win ALL the scholarships that you apply for.
You just won’t, BUT…the more you apply, the more the odds are in your favor.
Apply for as many scholarships as you possibly can.
My son applied for a TON of scholarships, many of which we found in this book, and won enough money so that his whole college experience was paid for.
He graduated with ZERO DEBT!
We started applying for scholarships in September of his senior year and did not stop until he had graduated from college.
Yes, it was hard work, but we did it together and it was totally worth it.
(For my other two sons, we started applying even earlier and also had fantastic college scholarship success!)

The method that I developed made applying for scholarships easier, more organized, and 100% more successful.
Take it from this parent who also used my strategies to achieve college scholarship success:
“Son is a freshman and so far nothing out of pocket at least for this 1st year. For years 2-4, out of pocket is reasonable and will be paid from 529 so no loans. Remaining $ in 529 is geared for graduate school. But we’re consistently working on outside scholarships. Definitely pick up the How to Win Scholarships guide ebook. Very valuable info.
One of my son’s scholarship committees were so impressed with his hard copy application they gave him a $100 visa giftcard outside of the normal $500 scholarship. They said the “packet” was so impressive & the heavyweight paper. Also, his interview was impressive as well but they couldn’t get over his packet.” W.Y., Facebook Fan
