The highs of earning a scholarship are enough to keep most people in the game, which includes a fair amount of rejection.
As Peggins notes, “If you don’t get the first scholarship you applied for, there are other scholarships out there that might be just right for you.”
It’s important to be strategic and stay optimistic, he says. And, as Christopher notes, scholarships are available for a range of interests and backgrounds: for minorities, for military vets, for single moms — for pretty much everyone.
“If it’s really what you want, then you can find it,” Christopher says. “Money is out there.”
