The Chronicle of Higher Education has a wonderful short article by Becky Supiano on the Top Ten Myths about Scholarships. The article reports on Mark Kantrowitz, who publishes financial aid/scholarship location websites FinAid and FastWeb, and has published a book, Secrets to Winning a Scholarship. He was speaking at the National Association for College Admission Counselling (NACAC) meeting in New Orleans this September, and the article reports on his talk. I think academics won't be terribly surprised at most of the myths debunked, but it's a nice list, and worth visiting, especially if you or a family member is searching for ways to pay for college. It's certainly worth passing along to the world.
