Obtaining a scholarship is the most cost efficient means of paying for college. Scholarships are monies awarded to students who present with notable academic achievements, or who have met the unique requirements or standards of the scholarship donor.
Scholarship monies are not repaid. They may be one time awards or recurring awards depending on the academic performance of the recipient. Thousands of scholarships are provided each year totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars. US.Education will be partnering with leading scholarship presenters.
Scholarship Sponsors: We are presently open to partnering with scholarship providers wanting to reach qualified student candidates through US.Education. Learn more.

Planning for a career is a process, not a one-time event. It is common for high school students to have only a vague idea of the profession he or she might want to pursue. This is perfectly OK and not out of the ordinary. That being said, students are advised to make their best effort to prepare for entry into a trade school, college, or university that closely matches their interest. This preparation entails specific steps such as building a respectable GPA, obtaining good SAT scores, being involved in extracurricular activities, and distinguishing oneself through other notable achievements.
Once in college, most students will declare an academic major during their sophomore year. This too is subject to change as young adults refine their dream of which career path best suits them. To assist in this process of exploring possibilities is the academic adviser. An academic adviser is typically assigned to incoming freshman, but may change to a designated departmental adviser once the student’s academic major is declared.
Internships and practicums are very helpful in providing students a real life, hands-on experience in a chosen field of study. An internship or practicum offers a level of insight into a profession that would otherwise be unavailable. This unique educational experience has no substitute since it closely mirrors what it would be like to actually work in a professional capacity.
Planning for your education is a practical goal and one that is essential in building a great future. It is a valuable investment of time that yields tangible benefits as you navigate your academic career.
