The students of this generation face stiffer competition than their parents in getting admission to colleges and winning scholarships. As demand for college admissions have soared, colleges and universities have seized the opportunity to raise their fees well beyond the rate of inflation. In response to this, parents have begun to pay close attention to their children?s activities from the elementary school level on and up with a view to increasing their children?s chances of gaining admission to the top level colleges and winning scholarships. There is currently no comprehensive guide for students / parents on the available options for financing their education beginning from middle school and continuing on till graduate school. This book not only provides guidance on available scholarships, types of government sponsored savings accounts and education loans but also goes on to reveal strategies on getting some of those loans forgiven. Beyond that, it provides parents and students important pointers on receiving different types of IRS tax credits and ways of claiming tax deduction for their kids? education or their own education. Also, winning prestigious math and science scholarships is not only a resume builder but also an enabler in raising the student?s chances of gaining admission to the top Ivy League schools. So, this is a must have book for students, parents and school counselors. The hot feature of the book is that all scholarships are linked by URL?s. A simple click of the mouse takes the reader directly to the sponsor?s site where additional information can be viewed and application forms can be filled out ALL ONLINE!. These URL?s do not even have to be keyed-in as the links to the websites are provided at the author?s book website and just a simple click of the mouse takes the reader directly to the opportunity.
