Sometimes, it is important to view scholarship searching like fishing. You need to throw your net out of the boat, and drag the dark, murky bottom of the river. Of course, when you start pulling in your nets, it might not seem like you have much, but there could be hundreds of fish on the other end. It takes patience, and a good knowledge of where the best parts of the river are. In the same way, searching for a scholarship like Katherine and Bryant Mather Fellowshipname is going to take some patience, but there could be thousands and thousands of dollars waiting for you. Do keep in mind that the search is worth it. If you attempt to put your entire education on student loans, you will be paying them off for the next thirty four years. And in this economy, there’s no guarantee of a job afterwards. The best way to go is to get someone else like American Concrete Institutename to pay for that education.
