Scholarships by State

Fact: More students are choosing to attend college closer to home.

The National Center for Education Statistics reports that a college or university degree gives you more chances of higher employment and twice the salary potential of a high school grad! But the high cost of education, ranging from upward of $13,000 to $35,000 per year, might make your chances of attending college a little dicey.

There is help close to home! Colleges and universities all across the U.S. feature scholarships to attract students in their home state -- helping students from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds affordably attend full-time college or university degree programs. Keeping students in their home state makes sense. It helps the local state economy and retains high skilled employees to fill jobs in demands.
