Winning The Scholarship Race is not another reference book. I came across various 500 page+ books that listed scholarships in alphabetical order and claimed that all students could apply for them. You know those huge books that have, "Go to College For Free" or "Free Money For School" in large bold font written on them. I would go through these books and quickly find that the scholarships were outdated, did not apply to me, or fake. A simple web search today will garner hundreds of websites and blogs from companies and people who claim to have the "Secret Formula" for going to college for free. What these sites or blogs do not mention is that their methods have not produced results, that the person behind it has no personal experience with winning scholarships, or that it does not provide information that specifically pertains to applying for scholarships.
