Scholarship Mom — Scholarships Mythbuster!

One of the biggest myths about college scholarships is that students with high ACT and/or SAT scores will automatically win them.

While it is true that some colleges and universities award scholarships to students with high test scores, most do not — and if they do, the awards are for a fraction of the total cost the student needs to attend the school.

High scoring students need to volunteer in their communities, earn high grades, and apply for each and every scholarship that they possibly can!
