Farmers Insurance Scholarship
Farmers Insurance Group (FIG) is one of the largest sponsors of college scholarships nationwide, and one of the easiest scholarships to obtain for those students strapped for cash.
Why Apply for a Scholarship?
Let’s face it; getting a college education is an expensive process! Depending on the college that you choose to attend, tuition alone can cost anywhere from $10,000 per year to $40,000 per year. Add to that the cost of college textbooks, room and board, cafeteria charges and the like, and the cost of college can be prohibitively expensive.
While there are plenty of loan options available (both through individual colleges and universities, but through Federal loan programs as well, there is still a sizeable amount of money that students and their parents have to find in order to enroll in a college or university.
To help defray these costs, many organizations, foundations and states as well as individual colleges and universities offer a variety of scholarship programs based on everything from ethnicity to financial need to academic achievement, demonstrated leadership skills and talents such as musicianship or sports talent. One of the most popular scholarship programs available, and one that is available to the broadest range of students, is offered by the Farmers Insurance Group (FIG).
