The Scholarship Page!TM started in 1997 out of frustration. I was looking for scholarships because I was flat broke (even though I worked part-time), and my parents could not afford to support me while I was in school. I actually had to take a semester off from school because of sickness caused by stress… most likely caused by lack of money. I used that semester to look for scholarships online and could not find any scholarship searches that didn’t charge. In compiling the information I found, I thought it would be a helpful resource to other students and decided to make the information available online for everyone to see.
