“Monica, in the two times that you’ve helped me now, you have been so kind. Even though we’ve never met, there’s no question you have a huge heart. Look how much you’re helping people! Trying to look for financial aid is nothing short of an overwhelming maze of choices — omg. But thanks to your efforts, people can now hone in to the most important places, and put their emphasis where it matters. You’ve made scholarships much more accessible to the people who really need them.” J.A., California
“I can’t say enough about how much helpful information is in Monica’s program. It is worth way more that she charges and anyone who has a child in high school that wants to send them to college should buy her scholarship guide. It will save you time and help your son or daughter earn more money for college.” J.C., Parent
“This guide took what was bound to be a very overwhelming experience and turned into a very rewarding and easy experience. We didn’t have a clue as to even how to get started applying for a scholarship. Thanks to this guide our son received a scholarship with a paid internship. Thank you so much!” H.H., Parent
“I was delighted to read Ms. Matthew’s truly insider scholarship guide. It’s so thorough that she’s figured out what font and size to use when typing out scholarship applications. I was particularly impressed that she used her own experience so I could know what to expect in a process that she doesn’t glorify or suggest “how easy it is.” What really caught my attention was HOW to present the applications. For example, use oversized envelopes when mailing your applications. That’s just for starters. I’m a marketing guy, and the marketing advice in this guide is priceless. Hint: Get this authoritative source while you still have time. Not getting it will have you wondering later…’What if I had purchased that scholarship advice.’ College is just too expensive not to act now.” Paul Hemphill, Planning for College

Thank you so much for sharing your ideas!” S.W., Marysville, MI
“Using tips from How to Win College Scholarships: A Guide for Parents in 10 Easy Steps, my high school senior secured scholarships to cover tuition, books and fees her first year in college.

Staying organized listed as step #1 in the guide was essential. Completing all the lines and thinking of presentation as if she were acing a job interview helped immensely.

“Organization made applying for scholarships a whole lot easier. Keeping track of the ones you’ve already applied for and the ones you plan on applying for, as well as when the due dates for those applications are, make it really simple to just go through when you have some spare time and fill out one or two applications. By breaking down each application into simple steps, preparing a good application that was likely to put me into consideration for the scholarship was neither difficult nor time-consuming.” Student
“By saving more time on each application, it made it possible to apply for more scholarships, increasing the chances of winning. To be honest, I got discouraged a lot when I was applying for scholarships, but the simplicity of filling out an already organized application made it easier to stay on task, and believe me, it’s more than worth it in the end!” J.M., Student

Keep up the good work…” S.H., East Coast
“Just had to tell you, we received the first envelope of “payback” and it was on my son’s birthday. Directly as a result of all your guidance and tips. He was named State of Idaho High School Honoree for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award — all-expense paid trip to DC (for he and I!) and $1,000.

“I am infused with excitement at the possibility of scholarships for my daughter! Before reading your guide I was plagued by feelings of defeat at the prospect of helping my child seek out and apply for any financial assistance for her college education. Your guide’s simple step by step directions are exactly what I needed to begin our journey. As a sophomore in high school, she already has begun journaling her volunteer experiences, building her resume, researching types of degrees and building a list of essay ideas thanks to your tips. The best part is that all this data is in a designated location (just as you suggest in the guide) and SHE is just as excited about the process as I am.
