Scholarship Programs: Unclaimed Scholarships, Grants, and Financial-Aid
Unfortunately many scholarships, grants, and financial-aid go unclaimed each year because too many high-schools and colleges place the interests of advertisers and membership organizations they receive fees from ahead of the interests of students. Consequently, many students who rely upon guidence departments are steered towards particular channels or away from far more beneficial scholarship programs.
Unclaimed scholarships, grants, and financial-aid are a reality and fact. Students are best advised to use their own independent resources and searches online for optimum scholarship programs, scholarship resources, and grant funding opportunities. Unclaimed scholarships, grants, and financial-aid represent millions of unused, wasted, financial-aid dollars each year.

Scholarship Programs: Federal and State Grants
2013 Scholarship Programs
In 1988, we sponsored our first scholarship programs for high-school students seeking scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. Since that time, we have expanded our scholarship programs to include graduate students, vocational students, and all students seeking scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. Grants are probably the least understood of financial-aid resources. Federal grants do NOT have to repaid back, unlike private or federal sources of student loans. Pell-Grants and Financial-aid should be an option for any mom, single mother, or woman to consider when researching various sources of financial-aid.
Unlike 10 years ago, students of today not only have more federal and private sources of scholarship programs, scholarships, and grants, but the Internet has spawned a new source of scholarship programs. Some of these uasi-scholarship programs sponsor crude forms of scholarships that do not rely upon merit or traditonal postage-clad recommendation letters, but instead these scholarship programs use a scholarship points system akin to social-gaming by federal agencies. Under this model of scholarship programs, students accumulate scholarship points as a dominant gauge to select or [choose] scholarship recipients. Under the social-gaming theory of scholarship programs, students have flocked to scholarship program sites that feature quick, easy, and simple scholarship programs.
Scholarship Program Types: Scholarships for College
Top Scholarship Programs
Students seeking scholarships and grants for college need to know what type of scholarship programs that we sponsor. The type of scholarship programs that we sponsor are not only merit-based scholarships, but we also sponsor scholarship programs that include numerous scholarships, grants, and financial-aid for various areas of a student's strength, personal gifts, and personality. Students seeking to attend college need a vast arsenal of scholarships, grants, and financial-aid options. Everyone cannot be the class Valedictorian or school Salutatorian. Regardless of your class standing, we assume that any student seeking to attend a college or university has meritorious traits worthy of notice. The scholarship programs we sponsor range from scholarship programs for football scholarships; tennis scholarships; volleyeball scholarships; mom scholarships; nursing scholarships; poet scholarships, and many other types of scholarships, grants, and financial-aid.
African-American Scholarship Programs
In 1988, we sponsored the first merit-based scholarship program for Black Americans outside of traditional African-American organizations like the NAACP, and other non-profit organizations geared to help particular ethnic groups. Today, we still sponsor merit-based scholarship programs for African-Americans, and we encourage Black Americans, to LIKE our Scholarship Programs Facebook page, follow our Scholarship Programs twitter page, one-plus our Google Scholarship Programs scholarship page, and follow our Scholarship Forum, review our Scholarship Programs blogger page, and re-pin our scholarship program photos posted on our Pinterest Scholarship Program page.

Scholarship Search Engines: Importance of using the correct scholarship search engines when searching for Scholarship Programs.
Don't let a bad scholarship search engine ruin you search for scholarship programs, grants, and financial-aid. If you are searching for scholarships, pay attention to whether or not you are receiving the best possible content, or a piece of mud that some advertiser threw on Bing, or Yahoo for advertising dollars. We have a detailed summary of the main scholarship search engines that students, adults, and institutions use to search for scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. We include screen-shots of poor scholarship content, while superior scholarship content is poorly ranked. We voice our opinion, but we also also encourage readers to test which scholarship browsers deliver the best content results. As a general rule of thumb, if scholarship pages associated with NAAS.ORG do not appear on page 1 of the scholarship search browser, while another page appears but lacks original content, or has not been updated for more than 6 months then it is time to use a different scholarship browser. Please research our rankings of scholarship browsers.
Scholarship Programs: No Scholarship Application Fees
There are no processing, handling, or application fee(s) associated with scholarship programs, or grants, sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. All of our scholarship applications are online. We no longer use the U.S. Postal Service because of the unnecessary expense, labor, and time. What is required, however, is plenty of effort, ambition, and a willigness by scholarship applicants to demonstrate their suitability to receive a merit-based scholarship. Premier Scholarship Club members may pay a one-time membership fee, however this fee is only for the services offered to premier Scholarship Club members and not an application fee.
