Leave no scholarship opportunity unturned and unapplied.

One scholarship complaint that is often heard is that if a student is in a minority group, they will have more scholarships open to them.

What most people don’t realize, however, is that the term “minority” refers to much more than race or ethnic background.

While it is true that there are lots of scholarships for students in racial minorities, other minorities include students who are female, bisexual, lesbian, gay, or transgendered.

When searching for scholarships, students need to be aware of their qualifications and apply for every scholarship that fits who they are and leave no scholarship opportunity unturned and unapplied.
