Are you a prospective student looking for sources of funding for schools? Are you interested in getting a degree, but you’re not sure how to fund your education?
In recent weeks, I’ve spent a lot of time reading, taking online courses and watching webinars. I believe that knowledge is power and there is no harm in refreshing current concepts and learning new ones. Because my credit card is on time out and I am not saving towards any type of education, I am taking advantage of as many free or low-cost certificates and diplomas as possible.
For several years, I’ve followed several scholarship and grants websites just in case I find something that I can use or share with someone. One of my regrets when I was shopping around for universities and Masters programmes years ago, was that I did not look for scholarships and grants and other sources of funding for schools. I believe that I could have saved even more on my degree.
