A Note from the Founder:
When I began helping seventh thru twelfth grade students with college and career planning, I quickly became very frustrated with the time-consuming process of finding legitimate websites concerning scholarships. If you type in "scholarships" into a search engine you will get hits ranging from 7 to 14 million sites, depending on the search engine you use. As I began the tedious task of searching through these sites, I made a listing of the name and URL’s of the best sites. These I placed on a hand-out to go home. A low percentage of these hand-outs actually reached mom and dad. I became increasingly frustrated in my attempt to figure out how to make sure parents saw this important information. During my master’s program at the University of Arkansas, I was enrolled in a technology course in which we had to develop a 5-page website. I decided to put all my favorite links on these pages as an aid to students and parents. After presenting my idea with my website to a class of up and coming administrators, several of my classmates along with my professor urged me to present this format to a wider audience. I later presented a more informative version of this site to my school and community relations course. The instructor, along with many of my administrator colleagues urged me to pursue completing the site as an educational business venture. The goal of the site is to help counselors, parents and students locate valuable career and collegiate sites in a timely manner, without having to sort through the enormous amount of sites available. Recognizing that preparing for college begins early in the elementary years. My original idea grew from about four written pages listing hundreds of sites to 100+ pages listing thousands of pre-qualified, categorized sites.
