Giving Gifts That Pay for College

What makes colleges give students money?

Colleges want to see specialization. If you read the college articles in “US News and World Report” or similar magazines, you’ll see that colleges want passion.  What they are talking about is specialization, or passionate interests unique to your child.  Therefore, you want your homeschool records to demonstrate your student’s passion or specialization.

Colleges reward specialization with scholarships.  During this season, give gifts that encourage your children’s passion and specialization, gifts that will fuel their love of learning, gifts that encourage reading, writing, and other basic skills, and gifts that encourage work experience.

Other gift ideas include things that help you cope and homeschool more efficiently. It’s been a few years since I homeschooled, but I remember clearly how stressful and difficult it was. If you can find or give gifts that make your homeschool more efficient, you will get better at your job. That will be reflected in your homeschool records, and in the academics of your children.

Colleges often reward highly effective homeschools – and thorough homeschool records – with scholarships.
