Sharing, posting. Sept. 2018. Some Scholarship articles from FB, also a nudge to VOTE.

Voting, Nontraditional and other Students, seeking Scholarships, and a bit about the HUGE increase in College Tuition.

We must all VOTE to try to change this.

I often list interesting articles about college and also scholarships here.

One recent one is about Rice University - who is offering free tuition for middle income undergraduate students:

I have not been doing much Scholarship Searching lately.  But with the recent increases in school tuition nationwide, it seems like it would be a very good thing to do.

I would still like to find a scholarship, and take a class or two. Or maybe more.  I have not done it yet though.

It seems that the Scholarship seeking world would be a LOT more crowded right now, but it's worth a try. My take. Fees are going up all over, because States are not subsidizing college and other schools as much. That money has to come from somewhere. And often, it is coming from the students themselves. We are becoming a nation of people who can't afford to go to college. Yes, scholarships are great. But some of them do not pay for everything. And you must win them to get them.

I hope that we can get State and National people in power to realize that schools are SO important. Education is also SO important, for all kinds of students. We need to offer college especially to worthy students who are not rich. It's just not right. We are wasting precious resources - - our young people. And they can wind up getting low-paying jobs and not being able to contribute more important things to our society. They just need education for a better job.

 Another things I have been thinking about - voting. I hope I can convince somebody who did not vote before to get out soon and VOTE in the next elections. It's important for everyone going to school and going back to school.
