Online students can get their education funded a lot more easily
Online students looking for funding opportunities should check out this scholarship offered by FormSwift
If you have been thinking of enrolling with an online school but you’re still undecided, you should keep reading. College education online often gets a bad rep – but these days, earning degrees online is not an oddity anymore.
In 2012, an estimated 86% percent of traditional colleges were offering online courses and more than one-third added full online degrees to their repertoires. We’re in 2017 now and some online school programs have gained a respectable reputation, as more and more students flock to enroll with degrees of this type.
Why is interest sparking in online degrees? Well thanks to undergraduate online programs, students can maximize their extracurricular lives, while pursuing their academic goals at the same time.
One major benefit of college education online is that there are virtually no synchronous class schedules. Naturally, students are expected to meet deadlines, but it’s in the student’s power to decide how to do it. In the virtual classroom, a student can build his/her schedule based on motivation, instead of classroom time.
Furthermore, online education eliminates any fees associated with housing and living on campus. On top of that you’ll get to go green and save the planet, as online programs don’t usually require physical textbooks and study materials, as everything is offered in digital format.
And with all the cost reductions, online students are more quick to pay for their college degree than their traditional counterparts. That doesn’t mean that online students can’t access funding in the form of scholarships or grants. Of course they can.
Most scholarship programs are open to all students – traditional or modern, although some grants or bursaries might be targeted only at one particular class of student. It’s important to search and find the ones you can apply to. But if you’re new to all of this and don’t really know where to start we have a proposition for you.
Why don’t you check out this grant? FormSwift – a company that specializing in helping you get the documents and forms required to get your business off the ground – is offering a scholarship to which both US and international students can apply.
