Looking for a quick scholarship to apply-to? Check out this $500 opportunity

If you’ve just enrolled with an online degree program, you’re probably starting to realize one thing. You might need help paying for it. While college education online is often referred to as the affordable variant to get a higher education, fees can still be quite high.

Actually some online classes are quite similar in cost to their traditional counterparts. So don’t feel bad if you come to the conclusion that you will need to find ways to get a sponsorship in order to be able to pay for your online degree program. Most students will reach the very same one at some point in time.

What you can do, is get to work immediately. Unlike a decade ago, studying with online classes no longer means you are not eligible to get a few scholarships. On the contrary. There are plenty of funding programs today, which are also available for those who are enrolled with a college education online.

Most general scholarships accept application from digital learners, while others are exclusively targeting those who are pursuing an online degree program. All you need to do is find them. Granted, this might not seem like the easiest of tasks at first. The Internet is wide and there are so many scholarship options out there, it’s easy to start feeling lost.

But if you stick to searching, you’ll find it’s not that hard to dig out the scholarships that are right for you. You could start by incorporating your major into your scholarship search. It’s a very simple way to single out some programs that you might be eligible for. However, you need to make sure you read the scholarship description in full. Some grants have other requirements like a minimum GPA and so on. So in order to avoid investing time in a venture that’s meant to fail, make sure you go through the full description before applying.

To give you an example of a scholarship targeting students in certain fields, check out the AfterCollege Business Student Scholarship who is awaiting applications from undergraduates, as well as graduate students. You can either be pursuing offline or online classes in one of these areas:

  • Accounting
  • Advertising
  • Business administration
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Human resources
  • International relations
  • Management
  • Political science
  • Public relations

You also need to have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in order to apply for this grant. You do? That’s great! Then let us tell you how you can apply for the scholarship.

Set up a personal profile on AfterCollege.com and fill it out with as much as info as possible. You’ll be asked about your education, experience and so on.

You’ll also have to do a bit of creative writing. Like for example, you’ll need to describe your goals and values that you bring in the academic or professional context (200 words or less).

You have until December 31, 2018 to fill out your profile as much as you can. The grant is worth $500 and even if this is a small amount, at least this is an easy-to-apply scholarship. So you should be done with the application process in just a few hours. Paying for your college education online has never been easier!
