#ShareTheGoals College Scholarship
Have you heard about the ShareTheGoals College Scholarship? Winners are chosen MONTHLY!
I was recently interviewed by TUN – The University Network and asked to share how I helped my son win so many scholarships. You can read the complete interview here.
The fine people at TUN told me about their own scholarship opportunity, the ShareTheGoals College Scholarship and I am happy to pass along the details to my blog readers.

WINNING TIPS: There are several choices when it comes to the content students can focus on and how they are going to share it.
Each of the 17 sustainable goals listed in the ShareTheGoals college scholarship guidelines should be carefully considered before making a final choice.
Students need to pick the goal that they have personal feelings about, have done something about, and/or plan on focusing on in college. Pay careful attention to the reasons listed for this scholarship opportunity:
In September of 2015, the member states of the United Nations agreed upon a 15 year blueprint to tackle the world’s most troubling problems in an effort to end poverty, fight inequality, and reverse climate change.
The University Network believes that all students and educators should be aware of these goals and thus have created this scholarship to help get the word out. Today’s students are the first generation that may be able to end extreme poverty and the last generation that may be able to to reverse climate change.
Inside tip for the ShareTheGoals College Scholarship!
THIS JUST IN! I was contacted today by The University Network and thanked for sharing their ShareTheGoals scholarship. (You’re welcome, TUN!) In addition, they offered me an inside winning tip to share with YOU! Read on…
One exclusive PRO tip we can give you, that you can pass along to your readers (if you want), is this:Not following instructions results in immediate disqualification. In the beginning, we used to notify applicants if submissions were incomplete, but that became impossible with the amount of submissions we began to receive around December.It’s an unfortunate reality that students spend all their time writing a wonderful essay or creating an awesome graphic/video only to be disqualified. 🙁
So, there you have it. Following directions to a “T” as I describe in detail here is so very important when it comes to submitting and winning college scholarships!
There are several ways to apply for the ShareTheGoals College Scholarship and very specific rules for publishing the goal chosen and submitting the application to be officially entered. Read through the guidelines carefully and apply for this scholarship by going here:
(NOTE: The Share the Goals Scholarship from TUN is now called the Volunteerism Scholarship)
At a dinner we had to attend to pick up one scholarship check, one of the judges told me that it was the way my son’s scholarship application was put together and presented that made it stand out and get chosen among the many that they had narrowed the stack down to.
Thank you so much for sharing your ideas!” S.W., Marysville, MI
