The Purpose of this Blog

The purpose of this blog is to help people further their education with little or no college debt.

I will post ideas on how to seek money to pursue your dream.

I will also post links for scholarships, internships, and other opportunities.

1. http://www.cwa-union.org/members/beirne/general-information.html

Communication Workers of America Joe Beirne Foundation Scholarship Program

Deadline: March 31, 2007

Description from web site: "Thirty (30) two-year scholarships, to be paid at the rate of $3,000 annually, are awarded each year to applicants from the U.S.A. and Canada. A second-year award is contingent on academic accomplishment of the first year."

You must be related to someone who was a member of this union.

2. http://www.executivewomen.org/ScriptContent/scholarships/asist.cfm

Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST), for adult women wanting to attend college

3. http://www.executivewomen.org/ScriptContent/scholarships/ewisp.cfm

Executive Women International Scholarship Program (EWISP)

4. http://www.ocssral.colostate.edu/ral/documents/Scholarships%20Adult%20%20Nontraditional.092104.doc

Resources for Adult and Nontraditional Learners

I found the initial web site for 2 and 3 from this list. I had to chop the web address though to http://www.executivewomen.org and look under scholarships. Often, web links will change and one way to discover the link is to go to the core of the address or google the organization.

This is the beginning.
