If your college-bound student is in the habit of applying for scholarships, consider it a big bonus. That’s because the practice doesn’t end with a college acceptance. There are scholarships specifically for current college students. This is wonderful news for families because college costs often rise each year of attendance, making it difficult to hone in on exact expenses amounts.

College Scholarship Expert Monica L. Matthews is featuring a scholarship for current college sophomores and juniors who are pursuing a degree in the field of engineering. Monica explains the specific application guidelines along with her wonderful “Winning Tips.” Also, heed her warning to apply ASAP before the school work load increases.

Scholarship Mom Alert: Don’t Text and Drive Scholarship

It’s a given; parents worry about their children. As they get bigger, so do the issues they face. If there is anything that can help reduce the risks as they grow, it merits close attention. Here’s a suggestion that can also lead to money for college.

Last month College Scholarship Expert Monica L. Matthews found The Zebra Safe Driver Scholarship that combined awareness of the risks of texting while driving with a college scholarship contest. This month, Monica is adding the Don’t Text and Drive Scholarship which has a similar goal but requires a tweet length writing rather than a longer essay for the first part of the application. Later, the selected finalists will get their chance to write an essay.

Many of the college-bound’s hands seem to be glued to their mobile phones wherever they are and whatever else they are doing. The texting while driving risk is there even for students who won’t have a car on campus. They can borrow a friend’s car or use the family auto when they are home. Many college campuses make it easy for students to rent a vehicle for long or short trips.

Let your child know about the scholarships available that can keep the issue of safe driving fresh in their minds. Read Monica’s post containing the application details and her Winning Tips in:

There are many reason businesses sponsor college scholarships and sometimes the motivation includes furthering a public interest. The Zebra Safe Driver Scholarship is a great example. Texting while driving is a huge danger to drivers and pedestrians. “Auto insurance specialists at ‘The Zebra’ are offering a $500 college scholarship to students who best describe the moment they decided to permanently stop texting and driving,“ states College Scholarship Expert Monica L. Matthews.

Having fewer distracted drivers is also in the interest of a car insurance agency. “That is what the Safe Driver Scholarship is about: the chance for students nationwide to inspire and educate us, our readers, and young drivers everywhere who could benefit from their peers’ experience,” according to TheZebra.com.
