The new year offers all of us a fresh start and a time to consider what’s next. If you have a high school senior in the family, what might be next is college in the fall. It may seem early, but now is the time to start making plans – including plans for how to pay for college.
One way to help cover college expenses is via scholarships. Urge your high school senior to submit an application for the William A. Dietrich Memorial Scholarship from USBA Services, Inc.1 Click to find all the details you need.
This scholarship provides a $2,000 non-renewable grant. Recipients can use the funds for tuition, room and board, or other college-related expenses.
