Did you know that the average US student loan debt is $32,731?
Yes, you read that right. Yikes!
Paying for college is the number one worry for parents and students attending university. With the average tuition costs across the United States being $9,687 (in-state), $21,184 (out-of-state), and $35,087 (private), it’s no wonder.
But did you know there are over 40 billion dollars of scholarship money out there ready for you to grab?
