I have a through Metro and my husband's work. If the scholarship you are talking about is the one I'm thinking about the school you attend can choose whether or not to base it on financial need. My school DOES base it on financial need. It really makes me very angry. Why can't it be based on gpa?? Grants are for financial aid, not imo. Ok, so my husband makes a lot of money, but my school COSTS a lot of money too! I have two children and daycare expenses along with everything else. Ok, vent out of the way. lol.

Aug 16, '05Joined: Jul '04; Posts: 208; Likes: 2and got $2,000 total this year in 3 scholarships. They were all achievement and community service based. The application process and letters of recomendation were a pain to get but worth it. I do not qualify for financial based scholarships since I make to much money, but my 3.87 GPA and all of my volunteer efforts and Student Nursing Association involvement for leadership paid off.
I say, if you think you qualify, go for it...
good luck, dave

We had to sign a contract to work there for 4 months per semester of school (So for 5 semesters, 20 months). Works for me!!Did anyone apply for and/or get any scholarships or grants (either private or government)? What was the process like? Were they financially- or acheivement-based?
Thanks in advance for your info!
If we work, the "debt" is erased. Instead of paying 2100 for the first semester tuition I paid SLIGHTLY over $300.
I also accepted a Stafford loan (EVEN THOUGH I CHECKED "NO GOV'T LOANS") simply because, I decided this semester will be hard with not being able to work as much (they don't want me working for more than 8 hrs a week b.c of my age... (JUST TURNED 18)), and with gas prices about 50 dollars a gallon (HAHA.), I might as well take it... it was under 1k dollars but will help out with non school expenses.
