You don’t have to be a straight A student to get a scholarship, nor do you have to be poor. Many organizations and individuals offer scholarships to college students of all backgrounds, income, GPA’s and career choices. Grants are another option. A grant is free money that does not need to be repaid and may be offered by the government, private foundations, businesses and other funding entities. The problem is that students do not know how to apply or even how to know what is available.
