4th Class, Following the Examples of Those Who Have Earned $50,000 or More to Go to School—Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019; plus More Scholarships with Upcoming Deadlines

February 14, 2019

You do not have to go it alone. Several people who have gone to college or graduate school without going into mountains of debt.

And they have written books about it.

Let me introduce you to a resource available at the TSU Writing Center, the Scholarship Library. Many of these authors have found $50,000 or more to go to college.

You can view these books in the Writing Center if you are a Tennessee State University student. Just see Mr. Mike Turner in room 314 in the Student Success Center.

Bring some form of ID that Mr. Turner can keep as you read the book in the Writing Center. Be sure to bring paper and pen to take notes.

Following the Examples of Those Who Have Earned $50,000 or More to Go to School

In the workshop today, after we go over some upcoming scholarship opportunities, students will view these books and find scholarships and/or scholarship tips that apply to them.

I will create a handout from what the students find and post it in the next few days.

For those who have stumbled across this website, you can find these books in local bookstores, on Amazon, libraries, and interlibrary loans.

Also, you can find them used on Amazon or Ebay. For example, I purchased good, used copies of WINNING SCHOLARSHIPS FOR COLLEGE for about $5 (I got lucky) and THE “C” STUDENTS GUIDE TO SCHOLARSHIPS for about $10 on Amazon.

These books are listed in the order of books I recommend.

Two Creative Projects Worth $1,000 Each; 3rd Class, Finding Money in Creative Ways—Thursday, Feb. 7, 11:10 am-12:05 pm; and How to Register for an Appointment in the TSU Writing Center for scholarship coaching

February 5, 2019

3rd Workshop Class, Finding Money in Creative Ways to Pay for College

On Thursday, February 7, we will have our third class in the 10-week Scholarship Tigers More Money, Less College Debt Workshop Series.

We will be meeting in the TSU Writing Center, room 310, 11:10 am-12:05 pm in the Student Success Center, also known as the LRC, or the Harold M. Love Learning Resource Center.

Arrive early if you can to talk to me and make sure you get registered for the workshop.

In our 3rd class, Finding Money in Creative Ways, we will discuss places you may not have thought to look for money that can go toward tuition or other college expenses.

We will discuss the two opportunities below.

We will read a poem or two to discuss how poetry does not need to rhyme, but it can rhyme, depending on what you want to do with your creation.

Also, we will go over a few poems that have won competitions.

I will mention in the workshop other creative ways to finance your education. This blog entry may be expanded with more opportunities before Thursday’s session.

Remember, you will find plenty of scholarship opportunities in the handouts and blog entries for the previous two classes on this blog.

If you cannot make this workshop and you are a TSU student, you can make an appointment with me to have a tutoring session where we can go over the material or you can sign up for a scholarship coaching session where we will look for scholarships for your major and situation. How to do that is discussed below.

Two Opportunities Worth $2,000

  1. https://www.powerpoetry.org/poetry-slams/fight-fear-scholarship-slam

$1,000 Fight the Fear Scholarship Slam, D: Mar. 5, 2019

PowerPoetry.Org sponsors different scholarships to encourage poetry writing throughout the year.

The latest, Fight the Fear Scholarship Slam, is open.

You have to become a member of the Power Poetry community first, be 25 or younger, and then add an original poem by March 5, 2019, to enter. Full guidelines at the website.

If you follow the guidelines, tag the poem correctly (read the Scholarship FAQ), your name may be drawn for the $1,000 scholarship.

Selected criteria from the website:

HOW DOES $1,000 FOR COLLEGE SOUND? THOUGHT SO. KEEP READING TO FIND OUT HOW TO WIN.

“Always do what you are afraid to do.” This phrase popularized by the poet Ralph Waldo Emerson hits close to home with all of us as we’ve had to conquer our fears, big and small. Doing something you’re afraid of always starts off terrifying but the experience can be rewarding in the end — the hardest part is taking the plunge and getting out of your comfort zone.

How did you overcome one of your fears, and what did you learn from the experience?

Fear can be your best friend or your worst enemy — it can motivate you to move to a better place but it can also hold you back if you let it. Have you been afraid of trying something new? Accomplishing a certain task? Or maybe your fears lie in insecurities about yourself? Tell us in a poem how you’ve fought your fears for your chance to win.

 Note: This is a sweepstakes scholarship. That means a winner will be chosen from a random drawing.

 

ELIGIBILITY

  1. The basic requirements are this: (1) you are 25 years of age (or younger), and (2) you are a current or former high school student who will attend or is attending college within the U.S. or its territories.
  2. Add an original poem to Power Poetry by Tuesday, March 5, 2019. You’ll need to register as a member of our community first.”
