It is never too early to learn about scholarships and the impact they can make on not only your education, but also your entire life.

These post secondary students are incredibly bright and will share so many great tips with you about their post secondary experiences and how scholarships have changed their lives.

Listen in to learn why doing what you enjoy is so important—because if you don't, you won’t be successful in hitting your goals.
