    Thank you so much for sharing this information! College is so increasingly difficult to fund. We little ones aren’t at that age yet, but its never too soon to start looking. Its sad how many scholarships go unclaimed or unfulfilled. My husband funded his own education; he would have been eligible for so many different scholarships. I’m so happy to read about scholarships like this, its great knowing about options for the future!
