I hear all the time about how student loan debt is crippling Generation Y. In the past decade, average student loan debt has surged to $25,000 in Canada and almost $30,000 in the US. Debts like those are delaying some in Gen Y from reaching important life milestones like getting married, having kids, and owning a home.
Adding to these challenges is the fact that Generation Y, unlike the generation before it, is graduating at a time when youth unemployment and underemployment are rampant.
As someone who managed to complete two university degrees in one of the most expensive cities in North America to live in (Vancouver, BC in case you’re wondering) without going into debt and as someone with 5 years experience doing scholarship and admissions consulting, I knew that I had to do something. Through scholarships, hard work and frugal living I not only managed to make it through two degrees, but I graduated with over $40,000 in the bank.
In The Complete Guide to a Debt-Free Education, I take you through the Debt-Free Education process right from the beginning:
- I start by helping you choose a school based on their financial aid, tuition prices, available scholarships, and prospects after graduation.
- I then show you how to identify, apply for and win scholarships and bursaries that will help you take on fewer student loans.
- In the next section, I give you 100 ideas and tips to help you make money while you’re in school.
- The book finishes with 250 tips on how to live frugally so that you can take on less debt (check out some excerpts from this section dealing with textbooks, furnishing your dorm or apartment and my best frugal tips).
So, how much does something like this cost? I want the purchase of this e-book to be frugal as well so instead of selling it for $29.99 or $19.99, I am selling it for only $14.99! If you prefer, you can also buy it on Amazon and Kobo.
