Do You Have a Tip or Experience to Share?




Finding college scholarships that really pay off seems unrealistic to many families. One of the exciting things for me is to see a parent or student's face light up when they realize that they can be successful finding free scholarships.

I also regularly talk with family members who are burdened by the heavy debt load of college. Once they learn our consumer approach they often speak with regret not having this type of support before making costly and far reaching college-related decisions.

Families are all up against the huge propaganda machines of both the colleges and our debt culture. Don't underestimate the influence your idea or experience has in helping a family look at the college process and decision very differently!

What Clients Are Saying



“…without your involvement, we never would have thought to approach the college directly…. We got the documentation together to obtain residency, created letters to send and were granted residency which translated to $20,000 in savings.

THEN we went back and said, 'don’t take away her out-of-state scholarship just because she is now a resident' and got OSU to maintain the $7,000 scholarship".

"We would like to express our appreciation for the service that our daughter received.

She is our first child to go through the college application process, and it was very intimidating for our whole family. You were able to create a clear, understandable path for our daughter.

As a result of all of this hard work, our daughter was offered three presidential scholarships at various colleges, including a full tuition scholarship to a private college.

Thanks again, and we look forward to working with you on our son's upcoming college search."

"HWS presented an above average financial aid award, however, it included some work study. With your guidance, I went back and asked that the work study be converted to either grant or scholarship to relieve the financial burden while allowing my daughter to focus on academics.

They came back with the conversion AND continued to keep her eligible for an equal amount of money through work study."
