One simple fact about higher education in US is that it is not getting cheaper. There is a number of reasons for a drastic increase in tuition fees over the last decade: compensation for the inflation rate, higher enrollment rate, decreased state funding. The bottom line is that it is getting more and more expensive to study. However even if you have little money there is a number of funding solutions that will pay for your entire studies or at least will help you complete a project of your dreams. And you do not have to be a brainiac to win them. Assignmentlab has compiled this list of top 2015 scholarships that you still have some time to apply for.
