My Story

Every admission or scholarship selection committee uses an algorithm or ranking scale to determine their ideal “avatar” winner. With the proper research, strategy, and planning, you can tailor your application to exceed the standards for a given award, essentially winning by preparation. 


This approach emphasizes data-driven decision-making, where students can maximize their odds of success with the least time delay, effort, and sacrifice. 


When Grant’s scholarship quest began during his sophomore year of high school, he was emerging from a state of crisis, and his guidance counselor told him he would be lucky to pass all his classes, let alone win a scholarship to college. Later, encouragement came from his English teacher, who remarked because he had scored so poorly, he had the chance to become most improved.


Recognizing that his academics were inadequate, yet not satisfied to quit without trying, he dedicated himself to maximizing other qualities and variables he intuited would carry weight with the scholarship review committee.

 
After nearly two years of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution, Grant’s efforts were awarded a $300,000 full-ride scholarship to TCU offered to less than 1% of applicants. He studied mechanical engineering, entrepreneurship, and innovation, was an honors college member, and was paid $10,000 in excess scholarships by the university after his first year. 


Nevertheless, COVID hit, and after just starting a business, Grant’s principal priority was learning how to acquire customers. TCU didn’t offer an advertising program, and since scholarships are awarded based on characteristics and qualities rather than the scholarship itself, Grant reasoned that he ought to be able to win more regardless of which university he attended.


Grant then transferred to UTA, which offered an Advertising program and proceeded to win scholarships every semester, including 83.3% of the scholarships he applied to his final semester, including business, advertising, and marketing awards, which amounted to over $10,000 in excess scholarship deposits again. 


Winning a full-ride scholarship once could be luck, but winning 83.3% of scholarships, all with the same essay and application profile is no accident. After getting many scholarship congratulations letters for the same summer, Grant began seeking to help other students do the same. 


Grant has seven years of sales experience, five years of education marketing experience, a year of experience working as a Search Engine Optimization Consultant, and a year of experience working as a Scholarship Consultant. Grant graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Advertising in 2023. 


Grant would be grateful for the opportunity to do what he loves doing best – helping students win scholarships for college.
