i wish i read this before college.

Confessions of a Scholarship Winner by Kristina Ellis should be in every high school guidance office in America. Seriously, this chick got her PhD through SCHOLARSHIPS. Completely paid for. Please do not be discouraged by the fact that Ellis is a minority, and also came from an impoverished background. These factors did not get her all of her scholarships, you'll see as you read that Ellis' hard work and persistence are what got her to where she is.

In this resource, Ellis gives us her personal success story, and also spells out how to go after scholarships of all sizes. She includes how to write essays; what to concentrate on, and how to make every word count. How to write resumes, and make yourself stand out. Ellis didn't have outstanding grades or test scores, she was pretty average academic wise. Many students who are not in the top 10% of their classes think that scholarships are out of their reach, Ellis proves that is not always the case.

Now is the time to grab a copy of Ellis' story, take her advice, and start pursuing the scholarships that are right for you (or your kids).
