Employers Offer Substantial Scholarships
Some companies, such as Verizon (Check out www.pnnonline.org.), offer scholarships that are very substantial and accessable to students and dependants of those who work for them. A student’s employer, and/or that of their parents, can be an excellent source of extra college funding. They can also be one of the most overlooked sources. As with all scholarships, the requirements and restrictions can vary widely. While looking for ways to pay for school, be sure to find out what your employer(s) may have to offer. Also, as a potential employee, it’s always a good idea to consider scholarship and tuition assistance benefits seriously, along with insurance, salary, and others. They may turn out to make a big difference in your future prosperity, as well as that of your family.
