I'm talking purely dollars and cents. If you have a student entering college this year, they could win a scholarship from Sonlight worth more than what it costs to buy complete programs from Sonlight for the last 15 years.
That right: You could win a college scholarship from Sonlight worth more -- financially* -- than every complete program we offer preschool through high school.
There are 13 scholarships available this year, ranging from four grand over four years all the way up to $20,000 toward your university education.

You may have a few questions. Yes?
Q. What are my odds of winning?
A. Since you're an awesome Sonlighter, your odds are really good. Apply.
Q. What if I've got more skills and interest in something other than academics?
A. We've got something for you! We offer two "tracks" for scholarships, one academically weighted, the other more focused on creativity and activity.
Q. I'm sure there's all kinds of hurdles and stuff blocking me for being eligible. You know, the fine print stuff. Should I contact Sonlight before starting to fill out paperwork to make sure I qualify?
A. Definitely. It's not all that complicated, but you're busy and we want to save you time. The contact information as well as the specific requirements are all laid out for you on the scholarships page.
Q. Should I keep reading this blog post, or go get started?
A. You already know the answer to that.
For those of you who don't take instruction well -- and so find game demos like the one for The Stanley Parable hilarious, like me -- thank you for still reading. I have nothing else to really say about college scholarships other than, perhaps, to avoid giving your students access to game platforms like Steam which regularly run sales making games like the aforementioned only about $5, the cost of which only builds up when you feel like you have to buy 4,000 of such games to take advantage of the opportunity, only to find that the real loss is in your time which is limited as a college student. Perhaps, thinking back on it, I shouldn't have shown you that game link ... but I found the demo pretty funny. If you decide to check it out, let me know what you think.
...or don't. Because by then you may have found that not following narrative direction leads to more humorous outcomes.
Bottom line: Click here.
Decide what you want to do from there.
