The Scholarship Shark

College is expensive.

I don’t think that’s news to you, but did you know that graduates in the class of 2017 are on average carrying student loan debt of just over $39,400?
And that the student loan delinquency rate of 11.2%?

If you’re a parent, you’re probably worried about how that can affect your child’s financial future.

You need to hunt down as many scholarships as you can.

That’s why I’m grateful Pam Andrews is here on the show. She’s not only the College Admissions Coach and Scholarship Strategist behind The Scholarship Shark, she’s a mom.

A mom who managed to help her son snag $700,000 in scholarships.

Today Pam and I discuss:

  • how they worked together to find which schools to apply to
  • the strategy of getting scholarships
  • out of the box ways to make college affordable

Hope you enjoy!

  1. I think it is important to set financial goals at the beginning of the year. Before setting any goals, you should review how you did financially in the previous year. Did you spend too much on something, did you not save enough, did you follow budget, etc. Great information, thanks for sharing!

  2. The building in the photo is from my university! That is Kansas State University’s Hale library.
