Scholarships = Status

Instructor: Christopher Grafos, Ph.D.

Sometimes, I ask myself if I'm living someone else's life. I have earned over $1 million in scholarships and grants. I also have a Ph.D. The funny thing is that I once believed these types of milestones were out of reach for someone like me. The reality is that scholarships helped me avoid student loans, but they also built my career more than anything else. I remember the first time someone looked at my résumé and said, "Wow! You won all this money?" Frankly, those prizes helped pay for my education, but having them on my record transformed the way admissions and hiring commissions saw me. Scholarships changed my status. My program helps you do the same.
