Q. Are these products/services only for foster youth?
A. No! Although the founder intended on only serving foster youth when she created The Scholarship Expert, she realized after serving over 400 students that most high school students have the same struggle: finding and applying for scholarships. Now, we serve every student and family that needs help finding resources to help alleviate the burden of college debt.
Q. Is it guaranteed that I find a scholarship?
A. No, there is never a guarantee but that is why there is success in numbers. The more you apply for, the better your chances. Most scholarships have hundreds, even thousands of applicants, so your scholarship application needs to stand out. There is a formula to applying for scholarships that we have perfected and want to share with all students to increase chances.

Q. What improvements have you made since relaunching your business?
A. Since relaunching on December 20th, 2019, our goal has been to teach students how to become their own scholarship experts.
