One of the biggest college funding mistake we see among middle-upper and wealthy families is they often overpay for college. They simply believe they make too much money to get free college money so they don’t even try.
When we ask them why they pay full price for college their answers are always the same…Their family, neighbors, friends and strangers said they make or have too much money.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. Nearly everyone in this country has an opportunity to get free college money if they know how and where to look.
Did you know for example there are over 60 schools with over $1 billion in endowment money? Harvard sits at the top with approximately $36 billion but you don’t have to look to the Ivy leagues schools for endowment money. Virtually every college has it.
Best of all, most school endowment money goes towards academic scholarships. That’s right…academic scholarships. When schools find the kids they want, they pay them to go to school there just like the big schools pay outstanding athletes to play sports at their colleges. Most important, there is a whole lot more academic money out there than athletic money.
Our certified college planning specialists help families obtain free money to pay for college. Sometime this free money is in advance of school . . . Other times it’s free money at the end of college in the form of tax-free reimbursements. We call them tax scholarships.
Here are just a few of the advanced strategies and resources we employ to help financially successful families get free money for college if they don’t qualify for need based aid:
