College doesn’t have to be expensive with this $1,000 scholarship

Accreditation is important for any university, but it’s even more so if the school we’re talking about is an online university. College education online is a relatively new form of schooling, which until recently has been viewed with a lot of skepticism.

However, in recent days college education online has managed to shed that stigma. That’s because accreditation has entered the equation. Today, most online university programs come from accredited institutions, traditional or digital.

An accredited online university isn’t a rare thing anymore, it has actually become the standard. Even so, the so-called diploma mills still exist, and if you want to avoid investing time and money into a futile endeavor, you’ll make absolutely sure to check the accreditation status of the online university you want to sign-up with.

It shouldn’t be too hard to verify whether the provider of your college education online is accredited or not. An accredited online university will flaunt its accreditation everywhere, starting from their official webpage. Another clear indicator that you’re dealing with an accredited online university is that the school offers their own funding programs. Diploma mills want you to give them your money, they don’t want to spend money if they don’t have too.

So remember! While enrolling with an online university is a laudable idea, you need to be extra careful which school you choose. If you end up pursuing a program at an unaccredited college, you might not be able to do much with the diploma afterwards. Many employees don’t recognize the status of non-accredited institutions as legit providers of higher education. So if you want to make sure you get a job upon graduation, you’ll be extra careful. Don’t rush things, take your time making the decision. It might have a bigger impact than you could possibly anticipate right now.

What’s more, being a student at an unaccredited institution might cut your chances of getting funding. You won’t be eligible for federal grants, and you might not be able to apply with some of scholarship programs available on the Internet. That’s because the majority of bursaries are targeting only students of accredited universities.

Here’s an example. The American Bullion Scholarship is one of these programs that only accepts accredited students. If that’s your case, then you can easily apply for the grant by filling out the short scholarship form.

On top of that you are asked to answer the following question with a short essay no longer than 500-words:

What are the benefits of diversifying a retirement account with gold and bitcoin?”

If you think you have the answer, then go ahead and apply for the scholarship. You have until October 31, 2018 to do that.

The scholarship is worth $1,000 and there are multiple awards available. Winners will be asked to provide a valid student ID, transcript, or another proof of enrollment before they can receive the grant.

American Bullion Inc. will announce the recipients in December.
