Affordable Colleges OnlineFinancial aid doesn’t always come from large-scale companies or organizations. Many sources of scholarships are small, local-based companies looking to help those in their communities. Some scholarships are very particular, and some much more broad in their requirements, with something available for nearly every skill or demographic. Discover 15 such scholarships – just for women, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels by clicking the link for their webpage below.  http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/womens-guide-paying-for-college/
