By Kate Lindemann

If you are an adult returning to get your college degree, you know

But did you know that there are scholarships just for adult students?

Yes, and you could be the recepient of one of those scholarships.

First you need to get clear about how scholarship grants are designated so you do not waste time looking for money from programs for which you are not eligible.

There are some scholarships that are only for graduating high school

students. But there are many others that are 'general' ie., not restricted

by age or current attendace in high school and you as well as

a high school student could win one of these. And there are a

number of scholarships designated for adult or returning students

only.

If you really want a scholarship, you will apply for both the

returning students. "Casting a wide net is more likely to land

references they have about college scholarships for adults.
