Avoid the Pitfalls of Private Scholarships

With the private scholarship criteria being fairly generic, be cautious of the familiar trap created by the simple laws of supply and demand. With thousands of Walmart store locations and over 1 million employees you can imagine the stiff demand there is for these attractive private scholarships.

The downside is that you can spend a lot of time applying for private scholarships and have little return for your efforts. Not that you are not deserving it it's just the fact that there are often many thousands of applicants competing for a limited number of private scholarships.

To hedge your bets and tilt the odds dramatically in your favor be sure you know how you can get the laws of supply and demand to work FOR you.

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."
