 The Internet and Scholarships

Get on the internet and type the website find this book and select the link: The Internet and Scholarships. Do it now!  What you just did is a simple example of hyper linking.  Hyper linking allows you to link with similar materials anywhere in the world, as long as it is on the Internet.  So when you use the net to search for scholarships, you are going to different states or even different countries.

The Internet has vast amounts of information and you could easily get lost in the jumble of information presented.  The sites that are listed below and in other parts of this book are hyperlinked to make it easy for you.  While on the site point the mouse on any of the hypertext, or websites and follow the instruction (hold down the control button and then click the mouse). Hypertext or hyperlinked is usually underlined or in a different color from the rest of the text; when you point the mouse on it, the mouse changes to a finger or gives some sort of information.  If the links do not come in automatically, you will have to type the website into the address field exactly as they are listed.  If you wish to search on your own, use search engines such as Yahoo, WebCrawler, Alta-Vista and Dogpile and then type in keywords.  For example, if you are interested in medical scholarships, you would type in: “medical AND scholarships or medical + scholarships”.  Note that the “and” is all caps.  If you wish to limit your search to NY you would type:  “medical AND scholarships AND NY”.  Practice!

  The following indented articles are examples of information that can be found on the Internet.  Some sites do no pay strict adherence to the rule of grammar.  You should not use this to discount their validity.  Happy hunting and best of luck.

All-USA Academic Team for Community Colleges

The All-USA Academic Team for Community Colleges competition is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, the American Association of Community Colleges and USA TODAY. This program recognizes scholarly achievements and leadership accomplishments of students enrolled in community, technical and junior colleges.

In selecting their institutions’ nominees, presidents are asked to consider outstanding grade point averages; participation in honors programs; awards, honors, and recognition for academic achievement and service to the college and the community.

Students should expect to graduate with an associate’s degree between September 1, 2001 and August 31, 2002.

Washington State Achievers Program

Bill and Melinda Gates believe that access to higher education opens doors to opportunities, especially for low-income students and students of color. A recent College Board report revealed that more than 40 percent of children from high-income families received a bachelor’s degree or higher within five years of high school graduation, compared with only six percent of those in the lowest income group. The Washington State Achievers Program hopes to address this disparity in Washington by working comprehensively with 16 high schools serving large low-income populations. The program will encourage high school redesign efforts that raise academic achievement and increase college-going rates of all students, especially low-income students.
