What do you specialize in?
Showing students negotiation strategies and funding techniques that work regardless of household income or assets. We KNOW, which schools public and private meet your objectives and provide a step by step blueprint showing you exactly what to do each year to receive maximum funding,
How do you fund your services?
The funding comes directly from the endowment funds of the college or university your student selects to attend. This is NOT information the schools volunteer. They will primarily offer loans to both students and parents as an alternative for funding. NO ONE pays full price for college with our knowledge of the process and we coach your student step by step to meet our Promise of Value.
What type of Commitment do you provide?
We provide a written commitment of funding with a specific dollar amount in writing at the time you are invited to accept or decline funding. If we do not meet the commitment, your dues are returned. The good news . . . we have never had to return dues for not meeting our promise of value.
Who are the owners of your organization?
All selected candidates and their families are the owners of the organization. Each family pays a $100 annual membership dues which covers the entire immediate family. We are supported by a network of community volunteers who reach out to families in their community to recommend students for funding. Every candidate is selected by a personal interview (about an hour in person or via Internet) where students and their parents have opportunity to ask any questions before a funding offer is presented. Our average student receives in excess of $100,000 and some in excess of $250,000.
What is your required time commitment to secure funding?
We ask each student to commit about a half hour per week answering correspondence, primarily by email or phone. We also coach each student individually and record those session for the student to review and so the parents and their support team can track student progress which extends throughout college even to advance degrees and on to employment opportunities.
