It's time once again to apply for the College Prowler "No Essay" $2000 Scholarship! [Actually, it's that time once every month!]

And speaking of scholarships...

Whether you're in college, applying to college or only beginning to think about college, you should be searching and applying for scholarships, grants and other "free" money via scholarship search engines such as fastweb, MeritAid and Zinch. Remember, you've got to be in it to win it! [There are many other avenues for college gelt should you exhaust these options.]

Still in high school? Be a fly on the wall of the Guidance office.Guidance Counselors have a wealth of information at their fingertips, and a host of scholarship applications in their file cabinets.

Already in college? Check in with the folks in the Financial Aid office. They know where the money is and how to get your hands on it! [Also, be sure to check your college website -- look under financial aid -- for a laundry list of scholarship opportunities.]

And while we're talking about FREE, here's a link to everything you need to know about those FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Deadlines. You snooze, you lose! [FAFSA itself can be found at]

Going to college (public or private) in New York State? TAP into some extra cash (every little bit helps) at

Remember, if you need money for college, you have to go out and get it! [Ed McMahon isn't coming to your door with a check.]
