- How to Get a Majority of Free Money
Before pursuing grant lists for women and minority scholarships, equipping yourself first to be a
is a sure way to learn why and how colleges operate like a business.
Like any business they are willing to reinvest in their product (their student body) that helps attract even more new customers (prospective students).
Be careful to not get trapped into chasing endless applications for private sources of college grants including minority scholarships. By far the most college scholarships for minority students are found at the schools themselves.

While you are leafing through your pile of college marketing literature look for how many proudly mention where students come from. A sign of more prestige schools includes touting the number of foreign countries they attract students from.
Why is geography so important? One of the pitfalls most families fall into is to select a narrow list of familiar schools within a 2 hour driving radius
of home. While there are good choices to make, it is much more difficult to differentiate your student

My free webinar
teaches you why applying to a wider circle of schools typically results in more college grants.
Even extending to a weekend drive radius (4-6 hours) you would be surprised at the range of financial offers you can get for the
same degree goal. Just by being from a neighboring state can make a difference for some very good quality schools.
Take the idea a step further and many families can command a significant reduction in their tuition bill
because the student was open to attend a school in a different region of the country. Are you flexible to consider a wider geographic circle? If so, free college scholarships are more likely available to you.
IF you select the right schools to compare to.
