Other interesting Texas websites:
This also just in: the I Am Going to College Site. This
site is of interest to nontrads with children. It was designed by an elementary school counselor.
Here is their description: "The website has a unique purpose... to put to rest the
debilitating myth that parents cannot afford college or higher
education for their K-12 children. No matter your income level
- the money is there."
You can email the webmaster at email@example.com with any questions. This
person is from Carrollton, Texas.
Also, Be sure to check the Scholarship Links pages One and Two right here on the Nontrad site too, for more quality, free scholarship links.
Good luck finding money for your educational journey!
