How Likely are Full Ride Scholarships?
A scholarship in general is a provided payment that goes towards your expenses as a student. May it be just going to college or paying for your books and supplies. A full ride scholarship is something much harder to get that pays for, not only your tuition and fees, but books, room and board, supplies, and sometimes even living expenses. These types of scholarships are something that all students aspire to get. Studies show that there are more than 44 million Americans still in student debt with over $1.4 trillion dollars in debt, -https://studentloanhero.com/student-loan-debt-statistics/.
This graph shows that student loan debt in America has been steadily growing throughout the years building up to the insane number of $1.4 trillion dollars. Although college scholarships do help, most people (even up to their 30's) are still in debt and are working to pay it off.
"I studied chemical engineering. I was a good student, but these were the hard times of the depression, my scholarship came to an end, and it was necessary to work to supplement the family income." -Jack Steinberger https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/j/jacksteinb314153.html?src=t_scholarship
"Originality is the essence of true scholarship. Creativity is the soul of the true scholar." -NNamdi Azikiwe https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/n/nnamdiazik144539.html?src=t_scholarship
As we grow up there will come a time when college will be right around the corner. Regardless of what people say, scholarships help more than you think and although they aren't easy to get and the pay doesn't seem like much, they are well worth the effort.
