Nippy Betz refers to student loan debt as “the enemy,” and proceeds to explain to the audience how they (or their children) can “fish” for the scholarships they need to go to college debt-free. As he makes clear, before he goes fishing, he does some research — about what the fish are biting, etc. Kids need to do the same. Betz then moves on to identify the 3 common types of scholarship: functional (having to do with their major), institutional, and general. Critical, he says, is the number of scholarships applied to! 20 is NOT enough! Try for 100-200!
