Unused Scholarship Funds

Most would agree that America's economic crisis has taken its toll on colleges, students and families. Tuition continues to climb as a result of imploded state budgets while the funds to pay for college has become increasingly harder to obtain.

Nonetheless, National Academy of American Scholars is still sponsoring over $1 million worth of Scholarships, Grants, and Loans. In fact, over $100,000 in scholarships, grants, and financial-aid targeted specifically for high-school seniors went unused last year because too many high-school counselors did not distribute literature sponsored and approved by National Academy of American Scholars.

At a time when families are struggling with unemployment and strained resources, it is not only unethical but outrageous that professional, employed, and working guidance counselors would not offer FREE informaion to students and parents seeking resourceful information about scholarships, grants, and financial-aid.

If you are a student attending any high-school in the U.S.A. and your guidance counselor DID NOT inform you or at least share information on their respective web site (via a shared link) about the numerous scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars then you have a legitimate complaint for misfeasance; U.S. Guidance counselors have a legal and binding duty to discharge their statutory obligations; and it is an established rule of tort and civil laws that an action lies in favour of persons injured (i.e. eligible scholarship students and unemployed parents) by misfeasance, i.e. by negligence of guidance counselors in discharge of their legal duty to share with students resourceful and valuable financial-aid information.
