Over the past 15 years, college scholarship strategist Jean O’Toole, has spoken before thousands of students, inspiring them to pursue their academic dreams. Now she has a new book out that helps them afford those dreams, Scholarship Strategies: Finding and Winning the Money You Need.

This book is a must read and valuable resource for:

  • Parents and grandparents of kids in grades K-12 as there are outside scholarships available for students as early as kindergarten.

  • High school students

  • Students pursuing technical college programs

  • Undergraduate and graduate college students

  • Adults of any age seeking additional education

  • Guidance counseling teams

  • College financial aid department representatives


Scholarship Strategies is also a great compliment to college readiness curriculum for high school students as well as college counseling curriculum for college students. “You don’t need to be academically at the top of your class, a star athlete, or a student with financial need in order to qualify for thousands of dollars of scholarship opportunities,” asserts O’Toole, co-founder of Connections101, a youth empowerment company specializing in motivational tools for outside scholarship searching. O’Toole has helped students win thousands of dollars, including some individuals that were awarded up to $200,000. 

“Money for college is out there,” she encourages.  “You just need to know where to find it and how to win it. It’s all about working smarter and not harder. ” In Scholarship Strategies, the motivational speaker shares her vast knowledge, laying out 25 clear strategies for winning the money needed for college, and identifies 15 ways to reduce college costs beyond scholarships and traditional financial aid.
