Hi there, I’m Gabrielle McCormick

After a season-ending Achilles tendon rupture, my hopes of an athletic scholarship disappeared. And shortly after that… my grandfather died. To cope, I began spending my time studying successful students, making a lot of scholarship mistakes, and drinking a ton of green tea. But those efforts resulted in me earning about $200,000 in scholarships and graduating from college DEBT-FREE. And to be honest, had it not been for scholarships, I never would’ve started my doctorate at 23.

Today, I’m on a mission to teach everything I know about scholarships to help others pay for college.
