Aimed squarely at single parents, senior citizens, or adult students who are changing careers or going to college or graduate school, this book examines the issues and challenges unique to adults who want to go back to school despite the pressing responsibilities of families, work, and mortgages. These 501 strategies cover everything from finding and winning scholarships intended especially for adult students, obtaining financial support from employers, and negotiating with colleges for more financial aid to taking advantage of educational tax breaks, benefiting from government-subsidized student loans, and exploring cheaper alternatives to expensive colleges. Twenty inspirational stories of adult students who have used creative ways to pay for their educations are also included.

About the Author:

Gen Tanabe and Kelly Tanabe are Harvard graduates and the authors of Accepted! 50 Successful College Admission Essays, Get Free Cash for College, and Get into Any College. They have appeared on more than 100 television news programs, including CNN Financial News and Fox Morning News. They live in Palo Alto, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

Clearly experts on the subject of fundraising, the Tanabes won over $100,000 in scholarships while they were at Harvard University, allowing them to graduate debt-free. In this chatty but practical guide to footing tuition bills as an adult, they offer both obvious and little-known tips to readers who are going back for degrees. Naturally, scholarships play a large role in paying for college, and the Tanabes list 40 scholarships specifically for adult students and give pointers on writing a winning scholarship essay. In addition to receiving scholarship money, adult students can also qualify for financial aid, and the authors explain how potential students should go about applying for aid from federal and state governments, as well as from their college. Furthermore, many of the more than three million students who are over the age of 35 have a good shot of getting their employer to pay for their education, and the authors share advice on that angle as well. The Tanabes, who also wrote Adults Students: An Insider’s Guide to Getting Into College, offer an incomparable asset for any adult seeking practical, handy advice on paying for their education.
