030: The Scholarship System with Jocelyn Paonita Pearson

Jocelyn Paonita Pearson shared her inspiring story of paying for college entirely with scholarships in an earlier episode, but I didn’t want to leave you without a bridge from point A to point B!  Too many stories of success leave readers thinking, “Well, that’s great for them, but what about me?  How can I do that?”  Jocelyn has created service for students called “The Scholarship System” and she shares the details here!

One of the key elements of Jocelyn’s success in winning scholarships is that she created a system for herself, something that makes applying for scholarships less intimidating and that increases your chances of applying for and earning more!  Grab a pen and take notes as we discuss these steps to creating a system:

  1. Setting goals
  2. Understanding financial terms
  3. Finding scholarships
  4. Getting competitive
  5. Applying (including the essay)
  6. Getting the money year after year
