In today’s arid economic climate, a growing number of families and high school graduates are question the value of higher education. Naturally, they are wondering whether an investment in college is bound to pay off.

Even if college means having to pay massive tuition fees, but also for room, board and study materials, experts tend to agree that getting a higher education is well worth it.

But what if we told you, you can forget about covering additional college expenses? Well you can do that by enrolling with an online degree program. Jump on board with college education online and you’ll be able to study from home and bypass having to pay for an apartment on campus.

Affordability is not the only thing the online university has going for it. College education online institutions today offer varied programs at any level. Those looking to become digital students can apply for an associate degree online or online masters degree.

Just check with your online university of choice to see their offer. If you don’t find the associate degree online or online masters degree you’re after, keep searching. You’ll probably find what you’re looking for at another online university.

We should make a side-note here. An associate degree online is the cheapest form of online degree program available. On top of being more affordable, it also takes only up to two years to complete, so students who graduate can be out on the job market sooner than students enrolled with a full 4-year program.

An online masters degree also takes two years to complete, but this is a graduate degree and to apply to such an online degree program you need to have completed a bachelor undergraduate program. Don’t confuse the two of them!

Anyway, the third advantage of enrolling with a college education online is that students are eligible to apply for scholarships.

Like this one below which is open for both undergrads and graduate students.

Offered by the Fraser Institute, this scholarship seeks to award scholarships for college to students who are enrolled with an offline/online university or are still in high school.

In order to apply, all you need to do is write an essay with the title “Increasing the minimum wage: good intentions, bad policy?

When writing the paper, please consider answering questions like: Should provincial governments increase the minimum wage?

The scholarship program is open for Canadian residents. The Faster Institute offers three scholarship awards. The first prize is worth $1,500, the second is $1,000 and the third is $500.

The deadline to submit your essay is June 01, 2018. Good luck!
