Despite our country’s ongoing economic volatility and increased college costs, the financial aid picture for minorities has never looked brighter.

While numerous listings provide general financial aid opportunities, there seems to be a lack of online scholarship listings specifically for minority groups.

We wanted to change this by providing an extensive listing of scholarships exclusively for minority students on here:
Here at Intern Solutions, we connect students and other young adults with job solutions every day, and lately, we’ve noticed a fantastic trend: more and more people are opting for a trade rather than a white collar career. And our team couldn’t be more thrilled about it! Not only do these careers fulfill a passion for their employees, but they are and always will be in high demand.
I think about it this way: if I had a home repair project I wanted done or car trouble I needed addressed, there is no way — no WAY — I would have the skills to get the job done myself. And I know I’m not alone.
With that in mind, we’re working on a campaign to share scholarship opportunities available to aspiring trades workers. Following are some great ones that I’ve found, and that I hope you’ll consider sharing on your site.
