The image of the graduate in the corner of this page is my experiment in motherly nagging through blogging. Now is the time to be looking for and applying for scholarships for the 2008-2009 school year, and beyond.
I'm always surprised at how many college students will take a chance on lottery tickets, unrefrigerated leftovers, cross country romances, used cars, etc. but they put off playing the scholarship game. I suspect that applying for scholarships involves too much introspection, at least compared to another loan application. As in most endeavors, you can pay now or pay later, and I'm one of those who think that a little introspective writing is good for the soul.
