School is expensive. Tuition is rising, the average student-loan debt has reached an all-time high, and scholarships are still a mystery to most students.

However, there are many ways that you can unlock the power of education. In fact, with just a little help from your friends (and maybe even some family members), you can make a difference in someone’s life by helping them with their own education costs—and even save some money on your own degree!

The Problem with Education

The problem with education is that not everyone has access to it. The problem with education is that people don’t know how to use it.

The solution? Scholarships, of course!

How to Unlock the Power of Education

To unlock the power of education, you must first know how to apply for a scholarship. You may not be awarded a scholarship if you do not follow all of the application requirements and deadlines. Say’s Marty Nothstein, if you are unsure about any aspect of your application, talk with an adult who can help guide you through it. If this does not work and if there is still time left before the deadline passes (most scholarships have deadlines between January and April), contact the person who gave out this particular scholarship and ask them if there is anything else they would like from their applicants before giving out awards based on merit alone rather than neediness alone; otherwise known as “deeming” versus “merit-based” criteria.”

Once again: don’t despair! There are many other resources available outside traditional college loans such as grants/scholarships which allow students access education without accumulating debt during their studies at universities around globe – including both public colleges/universities alongside private ones too! Students just need learn where these opportunities exist so they can take advantage while still maintaining good grades throughout school years without worrying about paying back huge amounts later down road after graduation day comes along someday soon enough…

With a little help from your friends, you can make a difference.

You can help someone else get an education and a scholarship.

  • Give money: The most direct way to help someone is to give them money, but this isn’t always possible for everyone. If you do have extra cash lying around, consider giving it away as a scholarship instead of spending it on yourself or your children (though we do encourage helping out your family). You can also ask friends or family members if they would like any assistance with paying for school–and then offer! It doesn’t have to be much; even $50 per month could make all the difference in someone’s life.
  • . Help find others who need scholarships: If you don’t have money but still want to help out those looking for scholarships, there are plenty of other options available such as finding existing scholarships that match the needs of students in your community and encouraging them apply through social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter


Education is the gateway to a better future. It’s a way to break out of poverty, and it gives people the opportunity to achieve their dreams. Education can change lives–and it all starts with scholarships!
