One of the greatest gifts that we can give to our children is teaching them the value of becoming and remaining debt-free. Moms can play a huge role in the college scholarship process and here are just a few examples of what they can do to help their students win money for school.

  • Due Date Reminders – Mom keeps careful track of deadlines and sends gentle reminders to student as dates approach
  • Proofread Essays – Mom reads each essay for content, completeness, typos, and grammar
  • Encouragement – Mom is a positive cheerleader in the scholarship process, constantly reminding her student the importance of applying and remaining upbeat and positive when motivation wanes.
