Advice from Brenda Herman, Executive Director of

Alpena Community College's Foundation

According to The National Scholarship Providers Association an estimated $100 million in scholarship money goes unawarded each year, mostly due to a lack of applicants.


If you are planning to go to college, you should apply for scholarships regardless of your GPA, financial circumstances, or family background. Scholarship donors support students of varying backgrounds and academic levels.


Did you know that by earning a scholarship it could help you have more time to focus on your studies?


Research shows that work can take up more than 15 hours per week and becomes an obstacle to academic success. For many students, the stresses of working make it difficult for them to graduate on time, or graduate with the high grades they have the potential to achieve. For other students, the work/study life is unsustainable, and they discontinue their studies altogether.
