I believe, with the right mentorship, you can win scholarships
I’m Christopher Grafos and I hold a Ph.D. in history. My academic work has received millions in funding and I want to share with you everything I know about creating winning applications for scholarships.
I founded BridgesEDU Scholarships for three different reasons that are deeply personal and important to me.
First, scholarships transformed my life. My scholarship wins allowed me to pay for school, work less, and dedicate much more of my time to studying.
Second, I didn’t have a lot of guidance while I was a student. My parents came from another country and English is their second language. While they touted the value of education, they didn’t have the experience to help me navigate academic matters. By consequence, I started way too late to think about scholarships and missed way too many opportunities. I want to help you avoid this common trap, irrespective of how much guidance you have at home. Even if you don’t share my story and your parents can edit your applications, this platform will help you to find lesser-known scholarships and understand how to create winning applications.
Third, I’m concerned about the problem of crippling student debt and I’m determined to do something about it. Education is supposed to help students soar. Unfortunately, it is becoming way too common that the once positive outcomes of a good education are being burdened by relentless debt. This is not the way it’s supposed to be!
Everything I know about how to put together stellar scholarship applications can be found in The Secrets to Scholarship Research & Writing mentoring platform. In these online coaching sessions, I’ll share the many insights that helped my academic work earn millions in funding.
