    You know, college sophomores, juniors and seniors need scholarships, too. Just sayin’. 😉

      Yes I agree. Just because we have been in college for a year or two, doesn’t mean we still have to pay for god awful expensive books.

  • Randi C

    To be eligible do you have to graduate in the year 2014? or are people that will graduate in 2015 eligible also? and if students graduating 2015 are not eligible will this opprotunity be available next year?
