About September Scholarships
September is the perfect time to apply for scholarships. With the new school year beginning, now is an excellent opportunity to pursue educational opportunities beyond what a family can financially afford. Scholarships are often awarded based on academic achievement, community service and extra-curricular activities that demonstrate leadership and dedication. This month is also a great time for students to seek out scholarships for a variety of special interests, such as art, music and sports. Scholarships provide invaluable assistance to students who may not have the financial means to pursue their educational goals. With the help of scholarship money, more students are able to gain access to higher education and fulfill their dreams. September is definitely a month when students should be looking for scholarship opportunities.
Cost of College in September
The cost of college can be expensive, but there are some alternatives. According to CollegeBoard's Trends in Higher Education report, the average cost of tuition and required fees for an academic year at a four-year public college is $10,440 for in-state students and $26,820 for out-of-state students. For most private colleges, tuition averages $36,880 per academic year. There are however some schools that offer lower costs. The three most affordable colleges in the US are College of the Ozarks (MO), Alice Lloyd College (KY) and Barclay College (KS). College of the Ozarks charges no tuition; instead students work on campus in exchange for their education. Alice Lloyd College and Barclay College charge tuition rates of $10,000 and $14,400 respectively. These three colleges offer an affordable option for students looking to get a quality education.
For those who cannot attend one of the above-mentioned schools, there are still ways to make college more affordable. Many states and colleges offer grants, scholarships, and loans that can help reduce the cost. Additionally, many colleges offer payment plans to spread out payments over the course of the semester or year. With some research and planning, college can be more affordable than it first appears.
