  • College Covered

    College Decision Day is quickly approaching as acceptance and award letters roll in.  We have integrated some new tools into College Covered to make it easier for students to make an informed choice on where they go to college.

    • Compare Award Letters: The Award Letter is an important factor for many families as they try to figure out which schools they can afford to send their student to. However, they’re not always written in the clearest language. Our Award Letter Comparison Tool, can help students and parents interpret their financial aid packages from up to 5 different schools to help determine which one is best for them.
    • College Decision Day: Some of your students may know which school they want to attend without a doubt, but others may be a bit unsure. Either way, now that they’ve been accepted, making that final choice can be intimidating. That’s why we’ve created this handy quiz to help students decide what's the best fit.
    • Scholarship Sweepstakes Award: It’s not too late to get more money for college. Your students and parents have a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship from Discover Student Loans! The first drawing is April 9, so be sure to have them visit College Covered to enter.

  • Voice of Democracy (VFW) Scholarship (Deadline: 10/31/2022)

    The VFW’s “Voice of Democracy” Scholarship Contest is an annual nationwide audio essay competition designed to give 9th-12th grade high school students, ages 15-19, the opportunity to voice their opinion on their responsibility to our country.  The student must record their essay on a CD or flash drive (3-5 minutes in length) on an annual patriotic theme.


    Each Department (state) first place winner receives an all-expense-paid trip to the national finals held in Washington, D.C.  Four fun-filled days of tours, visits to monuments and meeting with the heads of state and often the President of the United States.  The national preliminary judging takes place just prior to the students’ arrival in D.C. when the judges listen to the fifty-four tapes representing the state winners (from each of our fifty states, the District of Columbia, Pacific Areas, Latin America/Caribbean and Europe).  Once all of the finalists’ recorded essays have been reviewed, the finals judges make their final decision in Washington, D.C. and we announce all of the national college scholarship winners in Washington, D.C. during the “Parade of Winners”.
