Make your educational dreams come true!

Worried about how to pay for college? Afraid of drowning in a sea of student debt? Sure, Ben Kaplan once felt that way too. But that was before he discovered that there are billions of scholarship dollars out there for students with all types of interests, skills, and backgrounds. After winning enough college cash to cover virtually the entire cost of his dream school, he's written an indispensable guide that shows you how to stake your own scholarship claim.

Now in this fully revised and updated edition, Ben distills his proven step-by-step game plan that positions you to win big money for college — regardless of your age, GPA, financial situation, or family background. With humor and insight, he reveals insider secrets for successfully finding, applying for, and winning lucrative scholarship awards — empowering you with the information, inspiration, and know-how to afford the college of your choice and realize your educational dreams.

Special Note: As a valued reader of this book, you also receive access to the Coach's Locker Room at Ben Kaplan's ScholarshipCoach.com website. The Coach's Locker Room provides a wealth of bonus material, updates to information contained in How to Go to College Almost for Free, question and answer postings, and other helpful resources.

Synopsis:

Hundreds of millions of dollars in scholarship prizes are waiting to be won. 23 year-old Ben Kaplan has won many of them, paying nearly $90,000 toward his Harvard education. Ben then wrote and self-published his story and methodology in How To Go To College Almost For Free. Kaplan shares his scholarship-winning secrets in an intelligent and funny voice that's very student-friendly. Showing prospective college students how to locate and win scholarships, this how-to guide also features: • Real-life examples of scholarship winners and their prize-winning essays, applications and interview techniques— including two dozen of Ben's own entries. • “ Intermissions, ” sections in the text that cover subjects as varied as parental involvement and study tips proven to raise GPAs. • “ Ask the Coach” question and answer dialogue revealing opportunities designed specifically for students in their early teens, those already enrolled in college, students from rural areas, and individuals with diverse ethnic backgrounds. Like a young Dale Carnegie or Stephen Covey, Ben brings a powerhouse persona to the table that will sell books and make them the last word in the category.

Synopsis:

The ultimate scholarship toolbox with four essential scholarship resources--an aggressive "how-to" guide that teaches the techniques of top scholarship winners, a directory of scholarship prizes, and a library of winning essays, applications, support letters and other sample materials.

About the Author

Ben Kaplan won more than two dozen scholarships — amassing nearly $90,000 in unrestricted college cash for use at any school. In 1999, he graduated from Harvard debt-free, with virtually the entire cost of his education covered by his scholarship winnings.

In addition to writing The Scholarship Scouting Report, Kaplan is the author of How to Go to College Almost for Free and Scholarship Seekers Toolbox — the three books forming an essential paying-for-college trilogy for students of all ages. Kaplan has also written numerous articles on winning scholarships, including columns for The New York Times and U.S. News & World Report, that have been syndicated in publications nationwide. He has been featured on hundreds of television and radio programs, including appearances on Oprah, NBC, CBS, and National Public Radio.

Known internationally as "The Scholarship Coach," Kaplan has served as the resident scholarship adviser at some of the Internets most popular scholarship search websites, and is the founder of ScholarshipCoach.com, the leading online scholarship advice portal.

Kaplan currently resides in Portland, Oregon, and can be contacted at Ben@ScholarshipCoach.com via e-mail.

I would give it a 5 if I could find the Coach's Locker Room. I bought the book and I have logged on to the site but I CANNOT find the Coach's Locker Room to access all the info listed in the book. I emailed ScholarshipCoach and still no reply. Does anyone have a clue how I access this link?

this book really helped me out! im going off to college this fall and this book made me realize that although i dont have the best grades, it got me applying for things i never thought i could ever get money for. I was interested in this book because after i decided where to go for college (which happend to be a private college) it got me worried about how my parents are going to be able to pay for four years of this; so i decided to help out. Overall, i think that all college bound students should read this book!!!
