High-Paying Hawaii Scholarships

High-Paying Hawaii Scholarships

Plentiful Hawaii scholarships, and beautiful Hawaii weather. What a great combination. Hawaii is an expensive state, and therefore many wonder: Do high-paying Hawaii scholarships really exist? Sure, they do. Simply visit the website of National Academy of American Scholars and you will find more than 100 high-paying Hawaii scholarships in numerous categories. There is no fee required to apply for our high-paying Hawaii scholarships, and neither is there any requirement to be a member of any third-party organization.

One of the dynamic elements in Hawaii is the changing economic landscape of students needing scholarships to to attend Hawaii schools, colleges, and universities vs. moms, and women students who are striving to balance their families and jobs as they pursue a college education. According to recent educational surveys, at least 75% of today's college students are trying to balance school with work and parenting responsibilities. In Hawaii, financial aid for college students is decreasing as the cost of education and real-estate prices are continuing to mount.

As you search for high-paying Hawaii Scholarships, most likely you will come across scholarship search databases that claim "We're the best and the biggest." You may also come in contact with other scholarship search databases that claim to have even $1 billion of scholarships and grants. At the same time, it is important that you understand that the best high-paying Hawaii Scholarships will not be found in the database of the Hawaii Department of Education, or in scholarship links listed on the Hawaii Higher Education website. You may also not find the most valuable scholarships on the bulletin board of The Office for Student Financial Affairs of the financial aid office at the University of Hawaii .

Besides, National Academy of American Scholars as a resource for high-paying Hawaii scholarships, a student may also find high-paying Hawaii scholarships sposnored by the The Hawaii Community Foundation. The Hawaii Community Foundation recognizes the growing challenge of supporting students who are motivated to attain their degrees and achieve their career goals. The Hawaii Community Foundation Hawaii scholarship program consists of over 170 different high-paying Hawaii scholarships established by generous individuals, businesses, organizations, and private foundations. Private scholarship sponsors work best without government influence, and without the government being a nuisance in the administration or sponsorship of Hawaii Scholarships.

An example of government waste is the United States Postal Service. Despite having an annual budget of over $50 billion dollars, the United States Postal Service is broke. I am sure there are plenty of moms, mothers, and women who can better manage even 1% of the U.S.P.S. budget.

Where to Find Free Hawaii Scholarship Searches
That do not require A Logon or Password

Hawaii moms, mothers, and students interested in high-paying Hawaii Scholarships simply need to know where to look for such Hawaii Scholarships. Hint: you don't need to provide a username, password, or even divulge your personal details. The NAAS.ORG website has FREE Hawaii Scholarships searches 24 hours per day. Another great tool is Google-Plus. Make sure that you are logged into your Gmail account when you are searching for scholarships.Repeat: Hawaii Scholarship searches conducted on the NAAS.ORG website are entirely free, and do not need a login or password. We do not censor our sponsors or investors. We are not "Sworn" to censorship like scholarship search service companies that appear on government websites. We trust that Hawaii moms, single mothers, women, grown adults, as well as students over the age of 18, can make their own decisions about Hawaii scholarships, grants, and financial-aid and not be spoon-fed by college scholarship search companies that claim "We're the Best & We're FREE" while at the same time they are methodically deleting, blocking, and censoring Hawaii scholarship information on their public facebook pages, and other social media channels when such information should really be shared with other Hawaii residents.

If you are an Hawaii resident, or person interested in attending an Hawaii college, or university, then your search for high-paying Hawaii scholarships should begin with NAAS.ORG. All Hawaii scholarship searches on the NAAS.ORG website, for example, are free, and uncensored. Hawaii scholarship searches on Google-plus are also free. Either way, if you look at the right sources and connect with the right college scholarship sponsor that has a history of delivering high-paying Hawaii scholarships that are renewable then your odds of winning a high-paying Hawaii scholarship should theoretically, and in all practicality increase. The odds are in your favor.

The best Hawaii college scholarships are FREE. If a college scholarship database company claims "We're the Best & We're FREE", but censors their college scholarship database or hides Hawaii scholarship data from college scholarship applicants then they are not the best.

Investors and Sponsors Fund High-Paying Hawaii Scholarships

If Hawaii is the state where you want to attend your college, university, or education at, or if Hawaii is the place where you want to dance in, play in, develop a love affair in, go to school at, and study, then we have high-paying Hawaii Scholarships that may be of interest to you. What do we mean by high-paying Hawaii Scholarships? We consider a Hawaii Scholarship that has a market value of $100,000 over 4 years, equally paid in $25,000 a year installments, a relatively High-Paying Hawaii scholarship. Certainly, you are not going to earn that sum working at your local Walmart, or 7-11, or McDonalds as a teenage or mom weekend helper. National Academy of American Scholars uses a network of scholarship investors, and scholarship sponsors to ensure that over $1 million worth of Hawaii scholarships, grants, and financial-aid are made available to eligible students seeking high-paying Hawaii scholarships.

Review of National Scholarship Providers Association

Review of National Scholarship Providers Association

This is a professional review of the National Scholarship Providers Association (a/k/a N.SP.A.) The National Scholarship Providers Association claims to be the "only national organization dedicated solely to supporting the needs of professionals administering scholarships in colleges and universities, non-profits, foundations, and businesses."

In order to carefully review National Scholarship Providers Association, we must review National Scholarship Providers Association with the same set of criteria we use for other scholarship search databases. However, the National Scholarship Providers Association claims it is not a scholarship search service, but rather a membership of scholarship sponsors. The National Scholarship Providers Association has a very controversial history, dating back to its association with Mark Kantrowitz, National Association of Student Financial-Aid Administrators (NASFAA), and other alphabet organizations that all seem to be inter-related. The question is whether or not organizations like National Scholarship Providers Association dilute scholarship funds or inflate profits for scholarship administrators?

Purpose of the National Scholarship Providers Association review.

The purpose of this professional review of the National Scholarship Providers Association is to assist women, moms, mothers, and students, as well as educators evaluate the merits, claims, and services of National Scholarship Providers Association. This review of National Scholarship Providers Association is important because the National Scholarship Providers Association is --like FastWeb, Kantrowitz, and other alphabetically-related organizations -- members and/or advertisers of NASFAA.

Function and Mission Statement of the National Scholarship Providers Association

According to its published claims, the National Scholarship Providers Association asserts that its membership "is open to organizations, colleges and universities, and individuals who are active in the scholarship provider community.." In reality, tests were conducted to verify this claim. The tests conducted were to use "Scholarship providers" that charged application fees, handling fees, and engaged in other legal acts that contradicted stated principles of Mark Kantrowitz (who provides advice and consultation to the National Scholarship Providers Association). In many instances, certain "scholarship providers" efforts to join this "network" were either rebuffed or ignored.

Therefore, there are questions as to the true mission statement of the National Scholarship Providers Association. Is the National Scholarship Providers Association simply an alter-ego of the policies of Mark Kantrowitz who seems to have a defined policy as restricting who and which "Scholarship providers" are able to "join" the National Scholarship Providers Association, and which alphabet organization(s) is allowed to "profit" from an association with NASFAA or Fastweb, LLC? Why does the National Scholarship Providers Association assess fees upfront to scholarship providers, knowing that these fees are being disbursed from scholarship funds bequeathed or donated?

High Membership Fees of the National Scholarship Providers Association

The memberships of the National Scholarship Providers Association are extreme and excessive. The fees consume a significant chunk of funds that were intended solely for the benefit of scholarship recipients.

Table of Excessive Membership Fees of the National Scholarship Providers Association
Disbursed Scholarship DollarsMembership Fees
Less than $250,000$180
$250,000 to $499,999$240
$500,000 to $999,999$415
$1,000,000 to 9,999,999$600
$10,000,000 or more$1,000
Table of Excessive Membership Fees of the National Scholarship Providers Association

Other dues of the National Scholarship Providers Association range as high as $2,000. In the 1990's, Mark Kantrowitz raised a big issue of legitimate scholarship sponsors charging application fees for the assessment, evaluation, adminstration, and detailed analysis of merit-based scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. This "so-called" and media-labeled "Financial-Aid Expert" broad-brushed every single scholarship sponsor in the entire United States of America as a "scam" for assessing any fee whose mere purpose was to compensate professional educators for services rendered, and to keep administrative fees to a reasonable level.

As a so-called "financial-aid expert", the non-sensical logic of Mark Kantrowitz was that such fees were unnecessary, not needed, and were furthermore simply evidence of a "scam." Hundreds of scholarship sponsors who had been faithfully awarding, administering, and providing scholarships were now ---according to a non-certified "Financial-Aid Expert" -- operating a lottery-style scholarship scam. It is no coincidence that Mark Kantrowitz has not made any similar claims against the National Scholarship Providers Association; Read this article why Kantrowitz took a high-paying job from Scholarship Points (a company that is not sponsors lottery-style scholarships in violation of the membership criteria of National Scholarship Providers Association.).

The fees charged by his buddy organization, the National Scholarship Providers Association, are extreme, excessive, and completely unnecessary. I am not aware of any information or evidence that the National Scholarship Providers Association is a non-profit organization or that it operates at arms-length from all of its members.

Board of directors of the National Scholarship Providers Association
Mark Kantrowitz: Hypocrisy Statements

According to National Scholarship Providers Association, "entities that provide scholarships which are awarded without meaningful criteria and/or on a random basis (e.g. through sweepstakes or a lottery) are not eligible for the Scholarship Provider Memberships." What an interesting statement. Mark Kantrowitz accepted employment with Scholarship Points in May of 2013 with a company that apparently does not even meet the basic criteria for a membership into an organization where he serves on the Board of Directors!! Are you kidding me?

The apparent hypocrisy of Mark Kantrowitz is not surprising. While operating out of a make-shift, unlicensed, "office" on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Kantrowitz crafted FinAid.Org. Despite his humble office, and one-man corporation, he was invited to speak on the subject of student financial-aid before the U.S. Congress as guest of the FTC. The Federal Trade Commission, ate, swallowed, and gulped down every false, deceptive, and misleading statement of Mark Kantrowitz. No matter how wild the statement, the FTC considered Mark Kantrowitz the second coming of Jesus Christ. Having relatives in the FTC also helped. The FTC invited this flawed, self-serving, and skilled self-promotion artist to speak before the United States Congress knowing full well he had not accomplished a single prominent financial-aid act worthy of such invitation.

The U.S. main-stream media (Bloomberg, the Los Angeles Times, and many other main-stream media organizations) spoon-feed Americans, educators, and students the unproven statements of Mark Kantrowitz. Many Better Business Bureau chapters followed the lead of the FTC. The main-steam media dressed Mark Kantrowitz as an independent, objective, ethical, and legitimate "Financial-Aid Expert." The FTC went so far as to encourage the U.S. Congress to pass a legislative act that addressed purported "Scholarship fraud" while --- get this--- the same proposed legislative Act ignored over $500 billion of student-loan fraud. Tell me who is the "Financial-Aid Expert" or the "Financial-Aid" self-promotion artist. The National Scholarship Providers Association appears to be nothing more than a for-profit extension of Mark Kantrowitz/FinAid.Org.

Superfluous Membership Features of the National Scholarship Providers Association

the National Scholarship Providers Association has numerous features for scholarship providers. Not all the features, however, are really necessary. Many of the features of the National Scholarship Providers Association are essentially the same features that the scholarship providers can do for themselves, or with others.

Do you need the National Scholarship Providers Association?

Do you need the National Scholarship Providers Association? No. Not really. Scholarship providers, scholarship sponsors should be taking the principal of valuable scholarship funds and spending those monies on forp-profit third parties. The main reason for using any scholarship search service is the understanding that you are using a legitimate, complete, and non-censored scholarship database. If your scholarship search service is filtering scholarship entries then you will miss out on valuable scholarships. FinAid.Org has a history of even blocking comments on its Facebook channel.

Summary of the National Scholarship Providers Association

Typically, middle-man, organizations that purport to help schlolarship sponsors increase their reach or appeal are nothing more than buddy organizations set-up by for-profit scholarship search service companies and advertisers to siphon away valuable scholarship funds, and leave very little to the intended beneficiaries.

Organizations that join such third-party organizations are essentially allowing scholarship funds to be wasted in exchange for advertising services. The literature of the National Scholarship Providers Association is pretty direct if you read the details. This is a third-party organization which solicits membership fees on a sliding scale (the bigger, the scholarship fund, the bigger the membership fee), and then to add obscenity to its greed declares that a dominant component of their membership services is increase traffic and leads to the websites of their members.

In summary, membership fees paid to National Scholarship Providers Association can erode as much as half or more of donated scholarship funds. Over a 50-year scholarship fund lifetime, the membership fee percent fee charged by the National Scholarship Providers Association may erode 63 percent of the scholarship fund, and leave only 37% remaining. Deduct other expenses, and students will be left with very little scholarship funds. Scholarship funds that are depreciated by third-party organizations and which create the affect of compounding costs do not serve the best interests of the public nor intended scholarship recipients. Why spend an extra $1,000 when you can the item yourself for $1.00?

The past literature, the advertisements, the associations, and the detailed involvement of Mark Kantrowitz, leads me to believe that the National Scholarship Providers Association is a for-profit "buddy organization" set-up by a scholarship search service to generate profits for the members, Scholarship sponsors that agree to such fee-sharing arrangements, or pay-to-advertise buddy organizations, do not have high ethical standards.

High-Paying Florida Scholarships

High-Paying Florida Scholarships

Do high-paying Florida scholarships really exist? Sure, they do. However, you may not find them in certain scholarship search services that claim "We're the Best & We're FREE" while at the same time deliberately censoring valuable scholarships, grants, and financial-aid information from Moms, mothers, and students seeking scholarships, and grants.

Neither will you find the best high-paying Florida Scholarships in the database of the Florida Department of Education, or in scholarship links listed on the Florida Higher Education website. You may also not find the most valuable scholarships on the bulletin board of The Office for Student Financial Affairs of the financial aid office at the University of Florida. Private scholarship sponsors work best without government influence, and without the government being a nuisance in the administration or sponsorship of Florida Scholarships. An example of government waste is the United States Postal Service. Despite having an annual budget of over $50 billion dollars, the United States Postal Service is broke. I am sure there are plenty of moms, mothers, and women who can better manage even 1% of the U.S.P.S. budget.

Financial Advice from FinAid.Org

Financial Advice from FinAid.Org

This is a professional review of the financial-aid advice from FinAid.Org as well as a review of the finaid.org scholarship search service. Students, moms, mothers, and working adults need a consumer review of the FinAid.Org scholarship search service since its claims that " since 1999, we have helped millions of students, parents and counselors search 2.7 million local, state & national college scholarships & grants worth over 19 billion dollars...". FinAid.Org claims to have a database of at least 1.5 million scholarships as of the time this article was first published.

In order to carefully review FinAid.Org, we must review FinAid.Org with the same set of criteria we use for other scholarship search databases. We review the scholarship history of FinAid.Org, the scholarship database creativity of finaid.org, their scholarship published claims of finaid.org vs. documented facts by government or independent agencies concerning finaid.org. We review other factors about Schlolarships.Com also. We review factors as their Scholarship Yield, Scholarship Quotient, FaceBook habits, their receptivity to competitive scholarship listing sources, the quality of their scholarship listings, their scholarship advertising claims, their duplicate scholarship listings, their excluded scholarship listings, their association with other scholarship listing services, and the success rate of their scholarship recipients, as well as what third-party agencies or organizations that FinAid.Org is associated with.

Purpose of the FinAid.Org Financial Advice review.

The purpose of the Financial Advice review of FinAid.Org is to assist scholarship seekers and educators evaluate the merits and services of FinAid.Org. This financial advice and scholarship search service review also touches upon the FastWeb scholarship search service since both FastWeb and FinAid.Org tend to be alter-egos of each other. This report additionally concerns the quality, credibility, integrity, and legitimacy of the FinAid.Org scholarship search service amongst its peers in the scholarship search service industry. We conduct a detailed review of all major scholarship search service companies, and post our reviews without charge on our websites and scholarship blogs.

Login Requirements for FinAid.Org: Catch and Bait Method

Scholarship applicants using FinAid.Org are required to enter or create a personal profile to logon before using the FinAid.Org search service. Once your email has been served up, and you have created your scholarship profile, then you can expect to receive numerous, and constant emails from finaid.org. If you do not want to receive mass bulk emails from FinAid.Org then simply be sure to not check any boxes that require a subscription or sharing of your email address.

Superfluous finaid.org Scholarship Search Features

Finaid.org has numerous features for scholarship seekers. Not all the features, however, are really necessary. Many of the features of FinAid.Org are essentially the same features found on many other scholarship search services' websites, such as its primary competitor, Scholarships.Com. For example, finaid.org provides a scholarship box with certain features, such as the GPA. The GPA feature is non-functional. When a prospective scholarship seeker applies actual input to the search box, the search feature produces a very vague response like "Award: $10000 Deadline: Varies. The [xxx] Scholars Program is open to underrepresented and first - generation college - bound students." There is no hint or evidence if the scholarship is specific to your region, location, major, or what all the details are about. Instead, FinAid.org requires user to "login" for more information instead of simply presenting all of the information at first. This is the Catch-And-Bait method that many scholarship search companies use. The "catch" is your personal login details and the "bait" is the vague scholarship. Unlike Scholarships.Com, we did not observe any so-called Success stories claimed by FinAid.Org. Typically, claims of "success stories" by scholarship search companies are irrelevant and meaningless because each scholarship applicant is different, and many scholarship applicants using FinAid.Org may not apply for the same scholarships.

Consumer Tests for finaid.org

FinAid.Org was tested in June 2012, March of 2013, and again in April 2013. Scholarship students were recruited to contact FinAid.Org via their social media channels. FinAid.Org DID NOT censor comments, or block our posts on social media channels. This demonstrates that FinAid.Org is practicing good scholarship ethics. Scholarships.Com, and College Prowler, by comparison, immediately policed the comments and censored them before potential scholarship applicants could be informed of the $25,000 Scholarships that we were sponsoring. Any scholarship search service that blocks, censors, or obstructs the objective of students seeking financial-aid is probably a scholarship search service that you do not want to rely upon.

FinAid.Org Like many Scholarship Search Services

Students need to know that not all scholarship search services are the same, but many rely upon the same scholarship database. Scholarship Search services, including Scholarships.Con, do differ from one another in several respects. Some scholarship search services are open to the public, and some scholarship search services are closed. Finaid.org has an open record for its social media channels like FaceBook, etc. For example, FastWeb was tested during this time period, and we were not blocked, censored, or obtructed. FinAid.Org, on the other hand, appears to have varying criteria for its database of scholarships, grants, or financial-aid, as well as who is entitled to visit and participate on its social media channels. The "criteria" that is used appears to be arbitrary, capricious, selective, and certainly not uniform. Beware of Scholarship Search companies that create their own so-called "criteria" to justify having a censored scholarship database, or censored social media channel.

Scholarship Yield of finaid.org

We will use the term Scholarship Yield. Scholarship Yield is a term invented by National Academy of American Scholars. A Scholarship Yield is a mathematical calculation using Calculus that helps to determine and measure the robustness of a scholarship database. In simple terms, Scholarship Yield helps to determine if a scholarship database is all fluff and no meat, and whether its data is fresh relative to the population-age it is serving. For the mathematical equation of the Scholarship Yield, please contact an NAAS Specialist.

We illustrated the concept of Scholarship Yield as it applies to another scholarship search company, scholarships.com in a prevous review. The Scholarship Yield of FinAid.Org is a function of its claimed 1.5 million scholarships vs. the population of eligible scholarship candidates, demographic data, an equalization factor.

If we use the figures provided by FinAid.Org, and their reported claims, then over the span of 10 years, the Scholarship Yield of FinAid.Org has not been impressive.

History, Founding, and Business model of FinAid.Org Search Service.

FinAid Page, Inc. and Fastweb were created at virtually the same time. FastWEB.com, L.L.C.,is a company organized in Delaware and has a Federal Employer Identification Number of 51-0377304. It was organized and formed in or about September 13, 1996. However, when Fastweb was formed, it had a principal place of business in the state of Ilinois, Lake County. Mr. Robert Michelson was listed as the original Registered Agent, and he claimed to share the same office as FastWEB.com, L.L.C. A Mr. Leon Heller was listed as the President of Trustar Investments, Inc., general partner of Trustar Investments, L.P., manager of Trustar, L.L.C., manager of fastWEB.com, L.L.C., according to documents filed with Ilinois in 1996

Likewise, FinAid Page, Inc., was formed on July 2, 1996, barely 60 days prior to the formation of FastWEB.com, L.L.C. It is a huge coincidence that two different companies formed in two different states at nearly the same time eventually become so entertwined together.

In fact, the College Prowler scholarship search service, which is another suspicious scholarship search company, also has CMU graduates as its founders. Apparently, CMU has become a university of producing financial-aid search companies instead of business of technology. FinAid.Org has a business model similar to many scholarship search listing companies. The basic business model is that it acts as a lead generator for institutions associated with NASFAA (National Associaton of Student Financial-Aid Administrators).

Students are requested to complete detailed forms, and the information supplied by students appears to sold or bartered to participating institutions. The scholarship database offered by FinAid.Org IS NOT an open source database. Students or applicants must be willing to exchange their personal information, login into a secure area, and each student may be bombarded by telemarketers, and inappropriate colleges or universities after registration.

FinAid.Org Association with Controversial Organizations.

Aside from using a business model essentially identical to other scholarship search agencies, FinAid.Org is also associated with the National Scholarship Providers Association (N.S.P.A.), National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), and Carnegie Mellon University. Mark Kantrowitz is a former student of CMU, and CMU has paid membership fees as a member of NASFAA. In fact, Kantrowitz created the first website for NASFAA; he helped draft the idea for N.S.P.A., and he is one of the original board members of this controversial entity.

To fuel its growth, and credibility, FinAid.org has relied upon a number of factors. FinAid.Org has had a controversial, and still unexplained relationship with NASFAA. What we mean by unexplained is that there is no credible evidence as to why NASFAA would select an inexperienced person who was simply a student from CMU and who had not accomplished a single financial-aid task of national proportions, as a source for sponsorship. After agreeing to sponsor the FinAid.Org page, NASFAA back-tracked agreed that it would not honor a previous agreed upon two-year sponsorship. As a mere student, Mark Kantrowitz was allowed to use CMU university servers, university equipment to run and operate his student-formed FinAid.org page. Kantrowitz was afforded special and discriminatory privileges that were unavailable to others. Kantrowitz was allowed complete, total, and unfettered free reign of CMU resources and computing equipment. Mark Kantrowitz was allowed to create, host, and use his newly created FinAid.org website on state-funded CMU servers, and use a CMU phone numbers as his business office phone. Nonetheless, FinAid.Org modeled itself largely after Finaid.org.

Furthermore, the published association of FinAid.Org with the N.S.P.A., is also a red-flag for concern. The National Scholarship Provider's Association is a third-party middle-man organization that seeks to increase the leverage for exclusing scholarship listings; i.e., censoring popular scholarship programs. Since its inception and creation, some persons believe that N.S.P.A. has been stacked with persons and institutions connected with NASFAA and/or Kantrowitz. FinAid.Org apparently was unaware of the fact that the consensus running theory is that the central purpose of the N.S.P.A. is to CENSOR legitimate scholarship information and financial-aid programs and instead to steer students towards entities that are paid advertisers and/or members of NASFAA.

Growth of FinAid.Org Search Service

The growth of FinAid.Org is parallel to the growth of numeroua other scholarship search services, and similar scholarship search services. This should be no surprise since both the Fastweb and FinAid.org entities are associated with NASFAA. The growth of FinAid.Org has been fueled by members of NASFAA, and its association with N.S.P.A. who in turn recommend FinAid.Org to its students, and administrators.

Summary of the FinAid.Org Review

In summary, the FinAid.Org/Fastweb scholarship search site is a decent scholarship search service. It has been recommended by many main-stream media sources. However, the main-stream media is the least trustful of sources because often times the main-stream media has vested interest in what scholarship search service they are promoting. Also, whan the main-stream media promotes services like FinAid.Org or Fastweb, the main-stream media reporters are not required to disclose or dislaim whether or not the reporter is being paid a "review fee" or whether or not a relative of the reporter is or has received a scholarship or other material benefit from FinAid.org.

FinAid.Org is also a reputed member of the Better Business Bureau, and has in the past publishesed such claims. This is also a red flag. Membership into the BBB is often a red flag for corruption, and use of the BBB name to invite or generate customers is often a technique used to disguise poor service. Companies that are members of the Better Business Bureau tend to be really arrogant and lacking in customer service because the company understands that its BBB membership fee is free pass for poor service and while maintaining a good BBB Reliability Report.

Over the course of 25 years, my experience with BBB member companies is almost like dealing with criminals in a candy store. The BBB logo and BBB membership status is the candy craved by criminals. No great company needs the BBB.

FinAid.Org collects student information and shares this data with its partners. The practice of sharing data with advertisers or sponsors is not unusual or atypical by scholarship search companies.

When students log into their respective FinAid.Org profile area, students are immediately bombarded with an array of choices and possibilities. Some of these scholarship choices are irrelevant and may be considered irrelevant.

The Scholarship Yield of FinAid.Org is not impressive. Many of the concepts and practices of FinAid.Org are duplicated by other scholarship search databases. Many of the scholarship listings of FinAid.Org can be found in other scholarship databases.

Do you need FinAid.Org Scholarship Search Service?

Do you need FinAid.Org? No. Not really. There are many scholarship search services out there. The main reason for using any scholarship search service is the understanding that you are using a legitimate, complete, and non-censored scholarship database. If your scholarship search service is filtering scholarship entries then you will miss out on valuable scholarships. FinAid.Org has a history of even blocking comments on its Facebook channel.

Recommendations to FinAid.Org Scholarship Search Service

FinAid.Org Scholarship Search Service should require that its datasbase of Featured Scholarship listing companies like Scholarship Points, and College Prowler cease their practice of censoring, deleting, and/or blocking important information that can be shared with students, educators, and others. By being silent and taking no action, FinAid.Org is agreeing to the tactics of College Prowler, and Scholarship points. Censoring information is an admission of inferiority and poor service.

FinAid Scholarship Search Service should cease the practice of requiring students to logon before receiving the full details of their scholarship. That's our opinion, and scholarship review of the FinAid.Org scholarship search service. Please log into our Scholarship Blog and leave your reply comments.

Misleading Financial-Aid: Part I

Misleading Financial-Aid, Scholarship Points, and Mark Kantrowitz: Part I

An Internet source reports that the self-styled Financial-Aid Expert Mark Kantrowitz will be joining the Scholarship Points team. Amazing! Incredible! On April 9th, 2013, the company that owns Scholarship Points announced that Mark Kantrowitz will be joining the team as Senior Vice President and Publisher of the Edvisors Network. In this role, Kantrowitz will apparently be responsible for the expansion of quality content across the Edvisors network. Scholarship Points also announced that the self-styled Financial-Aid Expert Mark Kantrowitz will also continue to serve as a "thought leader within the financial aid community."

Scholarship Points claims that "with more than two decades of experience in financial aid, scholarships and student loans, Kantrowitz is an invaluable resource to those seeking information on higher education." This sort of statement is not surprising from a company that operates lottery-style financial-aid programs for students. The marriage of the controversial self-proclaimed "Financial-Aid" Expert Mark Kantrowitz, and the social-gaming scholarship points generator Scholarship Points is certainly an odd couple, and reveals the true character of Mark Kantrowitz.

“We are thrilled to have Mark Kantrowitz join the Edvisors team,” said Joe Kakaty, CEO of Edvisors. “I am extremely pleased to join the Edvisors team,” said Mark Kantrowitz. In 1995, and during the United State's governments' widely advertised "Scholar$$Scam" campaign, the same Mark Kantrowitz criticized hundreds of legitimate scholarship sponsors, including respected organizations like National Academy of American Scholars, and National Merit Scholarship programs, as running a "lottery-style" scholarship. According to Mark Kantrowitz, who was nothing more than a student living in the Squirrel Hill apartments just outside of the main Carnegie Mellon University campus, programs that had been established, licensed, and respected for decades were now "scams" based solely upon his deformed reasoning. For example, The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955 and has always assessed an application fee. For example, National Academy of American Scholars required scholarship applicants to:

  1. Submit an actual written scholarship application;
  2. Submit a letter of recommendation for a scholarship;
  3. Submit three character references for your scholarship;
  4. Be subject to at least two interviews for a scholarship award;
  5. Etc.

I know of no lottery in the entire world that requires a lottery-applicant to be subject to these type of detailed extensive standards. However, according to the mainstream media's "Financial-Aid Expert", all of us apparently dumb Americans who cannot think for ourselves, and who are not allowed to question or critic the mainstream media's "Financial-Aid Expert", we must accept each and every statement made by this alleged "Financial-Aid" expert. We are not allowed to question any remark, theory, or any statement made by Mark Kantrowitz because the main-stream media has anointed Mark Kantrowitz (bald, homely, and uninspiring, as he may be), as America's unquestioned "Financial-Aid" expert. The picture posted above was taken in the mid 1990s. Since that time Mark Kantrowitz has lost a significant amount of hair.

Mark Kantrowitz: Skilled Self-Promotion Financial-Aid Artist

In 1988, the same year National Academy of American Scholars was founded by the academic superior to Mark Kantrowitz, Kantrowitz was still toiling for the MIT campus newspaper. America's "Financial-Aid Expert" was not even in the financial-aid industry when National Academy of American Scholars and many other scholarship sponsors were founded. Nonetheless, the main-stream medias' so-called "Financial-Aid Expert" seemingly claimed to know EVERYTHING about the whole financial-aid industry in 1995. Legal counsel I have spoken to concerning Mark Kantrowitz refer to him as nothing more than a clever "Financial-Aid" self-promotion artist. I know of no state-certification tests or government exams administered by any government authority that proclaims him to be a "Financial-Aid Expert." I know of no brokerage exams administered by the New York stock exchange, or the NASDAQ stock exchange stock markets, or from his friends at the U.S. Department of Education that Mark Kantrowitz has passed that officially certify him to be a "Financial-Aid" expert. I know of no judicial proceedings in which a court admnistrator has certified Mark Kantrowitz as a "Financial-Aid Expert". Heck, I even inquried at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, and they have no records of Mark Kantrowitz as graduating as a "Financial-Aid" expert. In reality, I agree with the legal assessment that Mark Kantrowitz is nothing more than a skilled and cunning self-promotion "Financial-Aid" artist. Plain and simple. I further agree that the main-stream media's constant referral of Mark Kantrowitz as a "Financial-Aid Expert" is simply further evidence that the main-stream cannot be trusted. Mr. Kantrowitz has used his association with placed government sources and others to generate huge personal profits while deceptively promoting himself to be a "Financial-Aid" expert.

Information and public reports suggests that Kantrowitz has routinely twisted, tweaked, and re-fashioned his principles and theories to suit his competitor target(s) of "Financial-Aid." For example, if his target was in California, Kantrowitz would announce that scholarship sponsors in "California" could not e trusted. If his same target moved to "Nevada" then Kantrowitz would alter his script and announce that scholarship sponsors in "Nevada" could not be trusted. If his same target then moved to "Texas", then he would re-fashion his moving script to match the location of his financial-aid target.

Despite his comedy of "financial-aid" reviews, his extensive flaws, his numerous contradictions, and his lack of legitimate credentials as an actual "Financial-Expert", educated and intelligent Americans are being asked to support the main-stream media's false contention that Mark Kantrowitz is a legitimate "Financial-Aid" expert.

The N.Y. York Times or Bloomberg won't make that statement or question the credentials of their "Financial-Aid" expert. Neither will you find meaningful, objective, fair, high-standards, and accurate reporting in any of those publications.

In fact, Scholarship Points conceded in legal papers that its scholarship points system should be compared to social-gaming. Scholarship Points is the organization that operates a "lottery-style" scholarship points system that the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office concluded was little more than a social-gaming system of scholarship points. Thus, the United States Patent and Trademark Office correctly and properly denied the trademark application of Scholarship Points by the Scholarship Points company, Edvisors.

Hush!! Don't believe what the the United States Patent and Trademark Office says or does because they are not the personal flunky of Mark Kantrowitz like the N.Y. Times, Bloomberg, and the other media companies detailed below. Many of these main-stream media companies incorrectly reported the arrest of the Boston Marathon murder suspects. If these same main-stream media companies cannot even report accurately as to whether or not a brazen murder suspect is even in police custody then don't expect educated and intelligent Americans, moms, mothers, and women, to believe they are accurate in describing Mark Kantrowitz as a glorified, holy, "Financial-Aid" expert.

"Financial-Aid Expert" Mark Kantrowitz, O.J. Simpson Prosecutor Marcia Clark, and Scholarship Points.

The employment of Mark Kantrowitz with a company like Scholarship Points presents an opportunity to again reassess the credibility, integrity, and character of self-proclaimed "Financial-Aid" expert Mark Kantrowitz. Do you remember the prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trial? Marcia Clark was hired to be a District Attorney by the county of Los Angeles. She appeared to be so tough as a prosecutor, so careful in her deliberations, so "judicial" and so "lawyer-like". However, when TV cameras began to roll, Marcia appeared to put in more effort for her mascara and make-up than her legal analysis. She wore her finest jewelry, her best dress shoes, and she made sure she smelled like a woman rather than a prosecutor.

Despite the verdict, Marcia did not even think to re-tool her prosecutorial skills to avoid another similar defeat in the future. No. No! When the O.J. Simpson trial ended, and when T.V. producers came calling with a seven-figure annual salary, Marcia Rachel Clark revealed that she is little different than the typical street-walking female prostitutes that Los Angeles County prosecutors prosecute on West Hollywood Boulevard. Yeah. The only difference is the title and the amount of the pay-off. Even as a prosecutor, Marcia Clark always had a price she was willing to accept: nobody met the price until high-rolling T.V. producers (i.e., media Johns) came calling. A true prosecutor is not persuaded when the TV cameras roll, and a true prosecutor will flatly reject each and every offer of the type presented to Marcia Clark.

Like Marcia Clark, Mark Kantrowitz apparently cannot resist the sums offered by Scholarship Points. For a price, prosecutor Marcia Clark was bought just like any typical prostitute strolling the avenues of West Hollywood and Vine. For a price, Mark Kantrowitz (the same person who presented a fiery speech before the U.S. Senate denouncing "lottery-style" scholarships) has demonstrated that he also has a price tag. So-called "Financial-Aid Expert" Mark Kantrowitz owes his financial-aid readers, and the public, an explanation of the financial details of his new arrangement with Scholarship Points, and why he has apparently switched his ethics.

What financial-aid dollars will Scholarship Points be paying to the so-called Financial-aid expert? Why is so-called "Financial-Aid Expert" Mark Kantrowitz now deciding to accept a salary from a "lottery-style" Scholarship sponsor when in fact there are detailed and extensive quotes from the same so-called "Financial-Aid" expert Mark Kantrowitz in the 1990s that denounce such companies? "Financial-Aid" expert Mark Kantrowitz claimed that companies that operate like Scholarship Points were "scams." Scholarshps sponsored by Scholarship Points require NO WRITTEN ESSAY; NO WRITTEN LETTER OF RECOMMENDATATION; and, NO REFERRAL LETTERS. Either Mark deliberately Kantrowitz lied in 1995 and 1996, or he really believed his own statements and is now simply selling out his ethics to the highest bidder. Perhaps a more accurate statement from Mark Kantrowitz should be: "The company is not a scam as long as Mark Kantrowitz gets paid."

Personally, I have never met either Marcia Clark, or the media's "Financial-Aid" expert Mark Kantrowitz. I have no desire to meet either of them just as I have no desire to associate with prostitutes or persons who lack strict standards of ethics and integrity.

Money can buy any prostitute, but money can't buy a man or woman with true integrity and principles.

Understandably, my comments may not be welcome by everyone. However, I do not feel that I need to apologize for my personal high standards or for pointing out the facts. Scholarship Points hired Mark Kantrowitz, and now the company must accept his past baggage of denouncing the precise business model of his new employer.

Now that Scholarship Points has linked itself to the hip, and groin, of so-called "Financial-Aid" expert Mark Kantrowitz, it is only fair to re-educate the public to the past statements made by Mark Kantrowitz regarding companies that operate so-called "lottery-style" scholarships like Scholarship Points; an opinion even agreed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Naturally, we should not expect that a single main-stream media publication will report on their so-called "Financial-Aid" expert Mark Kantrowitz. The main-stream media is generally either inaccurate and/or deliberately misleading. Check-mate main-stream media! That's your so-called "Financial-Aid" expert.

In my next report, Part II, I will discuss Scholarship Points in a fashion that also highlights the history of FastWeb, Mark Kantrowitz, and FinAid, and how these entities and persons are inter-related in the Financial-Aid industry. I will discuss those facts in Part II, as well as the relationship of Mark Kantrowitz to advertisers that were later implicated in the student loan scandal, as well as the hype statements made by Financial-Aid artist Mark Kantrowitz that led to the passage of one of the worst, most wasteful, and the least effective pieces of government legislation in U.S. history. I will also discuss how the Kantrowitz-promoted legislation arguably led to the student-loan scandal, and higher college tuition for millions of college students. Stay tuned.

Guidelines for Applying for College Scholarships

Guidelines for Applying for College ScholarshipsGuidelines for applying for College Scholarships


College Scholarships are a must have for any student seeking to secure a college education unless the student is quite wealthy. What are the guidelines for applying for a college scholarship? Is there a universal recommended way of applying for College Scholarships? We all know that over 95% of students attending a college or university either anticipate or plan on securing some sort of college scholarships, student-loan, or financial-aid option unless the student is, again, quite wealthy. However, how many students of multi-millionnaire status are attending a college or university? Very few. Case closed. Therefore, most students need a college scholarship to attend college. College scholarships are very competitive. If you are timid, shy, or unsure of whether or not to compete for a college scholarship then check your bank account for an extra $100,000. If you don't have an extra $100,000, then you need to become LESS timid, LESS shy, and LESS unsure very soon or your aspirations of attending a college will shrink like a dried-out condom left in the sun.

There are guidelines we recommend when applying for a college scholarship. These guidelines are based upon more than 25 years of sponsoring high-school, and college scholarships. According to a panel of scholarship selection experts and administrators that were assembled in California for previous scholarships sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars, the #1 Rule when applying for a big, lucrative, college scholarship of say, $25,000, $50,000, or $100,000, dollars in renewable college scholarships, to remember one single fundamental lesson: The rules of selection for a $250 scholarship are often the same when apply for a $25,000.000. National Academy of American Scholars has used this principle for over 20 years. It is the responsibility of the scholarship applicant to assert himself, or herself throughtout the college Scholarship application process, and leading up to the semi-finalist college scholarship interview.

Guidelines for Applying for College ScholarshipsMore recommendations for applying for College Scholarships

Always pay very careful attention to the exact (I repeat, EXACT) instructions when applying for a college scholarship. The #2 reason why many students fail to earn a college scholarship is because of the simple fact that they CANNOT, OR DO NOT have the ability to follow a simple written instruction. Accordinf to the College Scholarship Selection Committee of National Academy of American Scholars, over %60 percent of college scholarship applications were rejected within the first 5 minutes because the student or college scholarship applicant did not exactly plain and simple instructions when submitting their respective college scholarship application.
