Scholarships And Grants For High School Students

Ruth Said:

I need information with grants and scholarships (please read)?

We Answered:


A couple of things that you'll need to be aware of:

1) The Bright Futures Scholarship can not be used to pay for any college or university outside of the state of Florida. Historically, Bright Futures has paid 75 or 100% of tuition and fees at public universities, but as of next year, the newly approved tuition increases will not be covered by the Scholarship, so it won't be 75 or 100% any more. The Scholarship can also be used at private universities located within the state of Florida - it pays an amount equivalent to what the students who are attending a public university are receiving.

2) Students who attend medical school almost never attend the same institution as their undergraduate program. It's an entirely separate application process, and many schools actually discourage applications from their own undergrads. Your ultimate goal to attend the University of Tennessee should have no bearing on your undergraduate plans, at least as far as location.

There are a number of colleges and universities in the state of Florida that are at least the academic equivalent of UT, and it will be far cheaper for you to attend a Florida public university, especially if you plan to continue on to medical school. The average med school student graduates with well over $100,000 in student loan debt, and it makes absolutely no sense to pad that debt with outrageous undergraduate borrowing.

You are quite correct when you note that out-of-state tuition is "more expensive" - to be exact, it's $13,590 a year more expensive, or $54,360 more expensive for a 4-year degree. If you're willing to pay $54,000 more for something than the average person, I'd like to talk to you about my car.

Focus on an outstanding natural science education at a Florida school like UF, FSU or USF, and save your money for the big debts that are still to come in med school. If you attend an out-of-state undergraduate program, you will be throwing away tens of thousands of dollars in Bright Futures aid that the state of Florida is willing to give you. How could the privilege of paying $54,000 more than everyone else at UT make that a worthwhile investment?

Good luck to you.

What are some good ways I can qualify for grants and scholarships?

We Answered:

Hello how are you? First of all you having a lot of volunteer or community service experience will definitely increase your chances/rate of success. What I suggest you do is use a scholarship search. A scholarship search allows you to create a profile and receive information for all the scholarships that you are eligible to apply for based on your profile description. actually has 2 free scholarship searches available right now. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Gertrude Said:

Are there any scholarships and tuition grants for students from abroad.?

We Answered:

I regret I do not know.

Gregory Said:

Do you have to be in high school to receive college scholarships or grants?

We Answered:

Check with your college. I personally graduated from our local technical college. I loved it. It gives you more of a hands on then what you will receive in your 4 year school. I wish I had the link that I watched on Youtube about how much you learn in a 4 your college and how much of it pertains to your everyday life. It wasn't worth all the money that would have been stuck into it.

Your college website should give you places to get grants and usually ours applied for all that it pertained to. Good luck and don't give up.

Discuss It!

The grant of the scholarship or the help to the high school students is ever the timely help to them. And if they are weak in the as well as in the finance and they do not have the enough money then these scholarships will truly forward the help to them in the right time.
