"Unless we are millionaires, we probably need financial assistance for our children’s college years. That takes preparation and planning — the earlier, the better.
We hear about scholarships and other educational opportunities that are available, but not many people bother to apply for them because they do not have proof of their eligibility requirements ahead of time.
The way to acquire these eligibility documents gets done one paper at a time. If we are able to schedule in time on a regular basis, like taking an at-home course, and begin this when our oldest child is in middle school, we will be in great shape. Don’t despair if you’re late getting started, but don’t lose any time either. Jump on it!
Reality Check: If we think we are all set financially for our child’s future educational journey and do not need to do any of this, please think again.
Learn from the best! Take some time to “sit at the feet” of an expert who’s lived the reality of securing scholarship money for her daughter and eventually for many other families as they navigate the uncharted waters of scholarships. Joan Ryan has figured out the fine points of making this happen and will share with you how to get started on the journey." (GibsonsB)
