Tech Scholarships for College/University?
In Florida there is a "full tutition" program for pretty much all in state students who want it. For those that don't qualify for that the state pays for 3/4 of the educational cost for in state students. However, this money doesn't cover living expenses, books, and booze.
The major problem with this situation is that creditors spend the next four years trying to get you to rack up debt via credit cards and student loans. I have a couple of friends with $30k+ debt and one with $70k+ debt.
On the flip side, my wife and I went to an "expensive" private school (with need-blind) admission and finished up with less than $10k of debt between us. I think the major difference was that the school we went to was "residential" (all students lived on campus). This had two big effects. First, there wasn't any pressure to spend a bunch of money to get a fancy appartment or goto fancy restraunts. Second, since housing was required, it could be included in finacial aid. Dartmouth (and some others now) have done a similar trick with computers. By requiring everyone to have them, computers for Dartmouth students are covered by their financial aid.
