Nationwide(BlackNews.com) -- As the U.S. economy continues to rebound, the number of scholarships available to students also is increasing. Every year, more than $40 billion dollars in scholarships are given away, and experts estimate that in the year 2013, that number will climb even higher.
Contrary to popular belief, 97% of all scholarships are given away by colleges and universities themselves, and the other 3% are given away by non-profit organizations and local/federal government agencies. The amount of funding that they give away all depends on how much revenue and donations they are generating, and as the economy recovers, more money is able to be given away.
It's estimated that a staggering $50 billion dollars in scholarship money will be given away this year.
