A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a conference with over a thousand entrepreneurs.

While sitting in one of the large banquet halls, I found myself gazing at the massive chandeliers. Hundreds, probably thousands of pieces of glass created these works of art.

However as I stared a little closer, I noticed something…

Thin, barely visible nets hung under each.

It was clear they were there to ensure no one got hit in the head by a piece of glass. But they were also there to prevent any discharged pieces from breaking by catching them before they hit the ground.

The same type of safety net is needed in the scholarship process.

In order to find the right scholarship support, look for the people that will catch you when you fall and who keep you from breaking.

They’ll be invaluable to your scholarship success moving forward.
