Obama Scholarships for Dads – Don’t Exist


This article is going to be more of a rant than anything else. I was looking around today and I saw someone on a forum talking about obama scholarships for dads. The forum conversation got pretty heated, but it ended with people being more confused than the person who initial asked the question – is there an actual scholarship that the President has created?

I have done some searching around and I don’t see any scholarships or grants from Obama or his cabinet. And first off, I’m a bit biased because I haven’t been too happy with his Presidency to be honest. I voted for him based in part on the hype and also the promises that he made. I remember standing a few feet from him, actually shaking his hand, and saying to myself “this guy has got to be the most honest and trustworthy politician I’ve ever met.”

Almost 3 or so years later, I’m looking at our country and just shaking my head. I don’t see any real ground breaking social changes in our country. There is actually a lot of racism getting stirred up in the media – crazy with that and we live in the year 2011!

Instead of going on and on about this, I want to give you guys a little hope – no pun intended there for those of you who remember his campaign. I think that getting money for school is going to always be tough. Our country’s education is very overpriced and it’s no wonder that about 8 out of 10 students need to take out money to afford it.

If you’ve already gone through the system and were able to get some money from the assistance programs – good for you! But I bet that you’re here because you’re looking for a little more. Books are damn expensive even though they are now in digital format. Hah – $100 for a digital copy of a book is insane.

Make sure that you also check out my main page because I’ve shared a list of 3 or 4 of the online 3rd party (sponsored) scholarship programs available for dads. They are not a definite thing, but are definitely worth the 5 minutes of your time that it will take to sign up. I personally do it every month or so. I’ve never won in the past 3 months, but I do know someone who did – lucky him!

Well, it is late here and I’m off to bed! Good night all

Review: A bit bigger of a scholarship site. Lots of people know about this one and you've got a lot smaller of a chance to get it. But like I always say, it can't hurt to try.

Review: This is a fairly new site (to me at least). I don't know much about the people behind it, but it looks good from the quick research I did on their site. My lack of experience with this site puts it at number four on this list. Take a look at the site if you have questions. If you have personal experience with it, please shoot me an email and let me know.
