"This is for you if you are a parent who is worried, overwhelmed, or stressed out about how to pay for your children's college."
Why? (Special Message From David)
FOR THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE...Did you know you could be earning college scholarships of up to 1 Year Free Tuition for EACH child you are related to? I didn't until I came across this terrific scholarship program while working on my book called The College Time Bomb & How You Can Defuse It.
As soon as I realized how it could help you, I stopped working on the book and started creating this webpage so you could discover the details and take advantage of it. Yes, you could earn up to $49,000 off the cost of college for each related child - for things you are already doing. Keep reading.
P.S. At the bottom of this page, I will show you how high school students you know can earn up to an $80,000 scholarship for things they are probably already doing in high school like playing sports, volunteering, taking specific types of classes, etc...
Every year I talk to parents who haven't taken advantage of scholarship programs, financial aid, and college financing help that is available to them. Please don't make the same mistakes. Sign up for this parent scholarship program and the student scholarship program. It can't hurt and could save you and your child thousands of dollars and a lifetime of debt and stress.
COST OF COLLEGE
- You should budget $23,410 PER YEAR for a "moderate" in-state public college.
- You should budget $46,272 per year for a "moderate" private college.
PAYING FOR MORE THAN 4 YEARS
- Plan on paying that for more than 4 years. In PA, only 41% of students who attend Public Colleges graduate in four years. Only 62% have graduated within 6 years.
- Private Colleges are better with 60% of students graduating in 4 years but still only 71% graduating within 6 years.
- 50% of American families have saved ZERO money for college.
- Families that do save for college have only saved $15,346.
STUDENT LOAN DEBT
- Student Loan debt totals 1.2 Trillion. The average consolidated student loan will cost $60,000. If a student has $80,000 the real cost could be more than $240,000.
- 44% of college graduates are Under-Employed.
The Scholarship Program gives parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and Godparents easy ways to earn a college scholarship of up to $49,000 (1 YEAR FREE TUITION) for EACH RELATED CHILD at more than 344 top rated private colleges & universities.
The program was founded by Dr. James Johnson, the former Dean of Admissions & Financial Aid at the UPENN Wharton School of Business.
Private colleges are in fierce competition for high school seniors so Dr. Johnson convinced hundreds of them to give students huge discounts on tuition costs.
So colleges wouldn't also have to pay for program advertising and administration, Johnson recruited partners (like me) who would tell their contacts and clients about it.
The first catch is that Parents (or other relatives) have to sign up. Then you can enroll related children. (This allows colleges to promote to all the children in signed up families.)
The second catch is that Students have to be High School Juniors or younger so colleges can send them materials before they decide where to apply.
If neither of these is a big deal to you, then signing up is a "no brainer."
Today - Monday, October 12, at 3:51 p.m. - there are more than 366,138 students in the program.
In 2014, High School Seniors used $43,600,000 in scholarships and this year the amount should be closer to $70,000,000.
There are many ways to earn scholarships. This process makes sure your family gets the maximum possible. - David

Why would colleges give these scholarships?
That's easy -- they want to attract more students, or better students, or both. And, they are eager to attract qualified students who might not be familiar with their college.
Colleges know that the direct costs (professors, teaching materials, etc...) for additional students are less than the full tuition for those students. So, by guaranteeing you a discount off of the listed price of tuition -- they usually come out ahead.
What businesses give Scholarship rewards?
- Pennsylvania’s 529 college savings plans – pre-paid tuition and Vanguard-managed.
- An ever-expanding network of banks, broker-dealers, college funding specialists, companies, credit unions, financial planners, mutual funds & other partners — carefully screened to assure colleges that participating families have assets.National financial marketing organizations & affiliated insurance carriers.
- New partner in 2014: Guardian Insurance.
- More than 1,400 employers use Tuition Rewards as an employee benefit, encouraging families to save for college & attend participating colleges.
- A test project is currently being done with the Girl Scouts of America
The Tough Questions
What if my family has a lot of money?
You actually might benefit more from this program if you do not qualify for any financial aid.
Because most colleges in the program are under contract to honor your scholarship credits.
Can only students who are under 12th grade sign up?
Yes only students 11th grade and younger can sign up.
Colleges participate in the program so they can promote their schools to Juniors and younger students. They don't want to promote the program to Seniors who have already decided which school they are going to.
Yikes! Are there other important Deadlines?
1. Students must be enrolled in the program before May 31st of their Junior Year.
2. They can't earn or receive scholarship points after August 31st of the year that the students begins 12th grade.
3. A student's sponsor (The account holder) must submit a student's statement to any member school he or she applies to at the time of the student's application to the school.
Aren't private colleges more expensive?
Not necessarily. In fact, they are often much more affordable than public schools. This is for several reasons including that only 28% of students at public universities graduate in 4 years compared to 67% of students at private universities. When you sign up you will receive a link to a calculator that will show you how much the TRUE COST is based on household income at both private and public schools.

We have rolled these programs out to my accounting firm's 2,000 clients. Parents save tons of money on the cost of tuition. Kids are motivated to work harder in school when they instantly see how much each activity earns them. We get to advise families on how to best position themselves for financial aid and protect their income and assets from colleges and government taxes.
