      Karen, this is such great information. I will never forget what it was like 43-44 years ago scrambling for available financial aid. While college tuition has gone up drastically, I am so thankful that many higher institutions, businesses, church organizations, and civic groups are offering young people financial aid opportunities via grants and scholarships. Important in this endeavor is the release of information to many who might not have seen that information otherwise...and this is where you are playing a most significant role. Kudos, thanks, and blessings to you for doing so! Good morning and aloha from SE Washington state! Joe

      Thanks HO. Nice of you to comment. When my daughter was searching for scholarships last year we left no stone unturned so I am just trying to help others out. The scholarships I have listed are a bit unusual so maybe writing this hub will help get the information to more of the right people that qualify for them. There's no such thing as applying for "too many" scholarships because if you don't apply, you don't have a chance to win.

      Smart hub Karen. I'm not ready to take advantage of these opportunities yet, but within 5 few years or so I'll be poring over every possibility.
