Sonlight's College Scholarships

College tuition costs are huge. That's why scholarships are so helpful. I was awarded an academic scholarship as well as a small sports scholarship for swimming. That money ultimately paid for almost a complete year at my university. Talk about a major blessing!

Are there college scholarship opportunities for homeschoolers?

Well, I know there's at least one! Sonlight is giving away thirteen scholarships this year. These scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000 a year for up to four years of your college career.

You can apply for these scholarships if you have used at least five Sonlight Core programs over your homeschooling years. Access to these scholarships is just one more incredible benefit of using Sonlight as part of your homeschool journey.

Have a college bound graduate? You still have time to apply! All applications must be submitted by December 7, 2009. Click here for both Sonlight's scholarship application and the complete criteria.

Don't have a college bound student yet? You can listen to interviews with past scholarship winners on Sonlight's Speeches and Interviews page. Hearing from homeschoolers who have been so influential and successful is inspiring. Their accomplishments also underscore the fact that homeschooling really does work <smile>.

Luke, Just curious... could the scholarships be applied to distance learning? (This is me thinking down the road... )

TIA!

Kim, glad you approve <smile>.

Hmm... you know, Grateful, I don't know <laughing>. I'll ask and see <smile>.

Happy to pass on good information, John <smile>.

Okay, I have an answer, Grateful: Scholarships are there for students pursuing a Bachelor's degree from an accredited schools. So, if the distance learning you want to pursue falls into that category, looks like you're eligible! Which is cool <smile>.
