Kristina Ellis was awarded a full scholarship through her PhD. How she managed to get that kind of a scholarship offer is revealed in this book. Raised by a single mother, Kristina appeared to have everything stacked against her - years of living below the poverty level, imperfect grades and sub-par SAT scores. Yet Kristina discovered the secrets to effectively presenting herself as a unique and desirable scholarship candidate. And she's sharing her secrets for scholarship success with students (and their parents) so that they too can obtain money for college.

That's when she devised the plan that led to her receiving over $500,000 in free money for college--enough to pay for her full education at a top-20 university, all the way up to her doctoral degree, and make her dreams come true. How she made it happen--and how you can too!--is the focus of this book. Kristina shares not just her little-known secrets for scholarship success but her incredibly inspiring story --
