Using my Skills October 9, 2009

Recently, I have been made the ‘unoffical’ scholarship coordinator at my high school. Who better, as I know more about scholarships than anyone I know.
I currently have a list of scholarships I am eligible for and need to apply to, which is about 80 scholarships long.
Not to mention, a mere hour ago, I found a scholarship that is due today. Thanks to my amazing skills, I should be able to finish the essay in time.
If anyone needs any help with scholarships, feel free to post your problems here. Likewise, if you know of a scholarship, please feel free to share your information!
