Upholding Our Community Values


Let’s make sure that everyone is on the same page.

The purpose of our private, ScholarshipTalk Facebook Group is to have real and honest conversations about paying for college. I genuinely want this to be one of your go-to resources for tips and information when it comes to scholarships.

From students to parents, we all share a common goal: making college affordable. And although each family will have a different journey, we all are on the same “scholarship boat”.

To uphold this mission, here are a few policies to keep in mind…

We’re Inclusive


This group was created to help anyone wishing to attend college with scholarships. We do not and will not discriminate against any member or potential member on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status. Admission is based upon a member’s.

We’re Respectful


Comments that are inappropriately negative, rude, or condescending will be deleted or removed. You may also be asked to revise your thoughts. This group is designed to be a place of hope, inspiration and most importantly – strategic action. There is a way to share your experiences, knowledge, and information in a respectful manner.

We’re Mindful

RESPECT Confidentiality.

Every member of this group has the right to privacy and to have their questions, answers, and experiences remain confidential. If there’s a common theme that appears, I may draw from that information to create something beneficial for all. However, I will never share the intimate details of your family’s life. I want this to be a place where you can share your frustrations, thoughts, and knowledge because your insight can help someone else.

We’re Focused


I understand how passionate you may feel regarding certain topics. For example, you may dislike a particular university or college; however, we may have a member that graduated from or attends that institution who finds your comments offensive. We all come from various backgrounds and life experiences. Be mindful. Please keep the conversation on topic.

We’re Human


Although we will do our best, it may be difficult for us to catch everything as our group grows. If you see a post that is questionable, please alert us by tagging me or one of our moderators in the comments, sending us a direct message, or send an email to Support@ScholarshipInformer.com. Our team will take a look.

We’re Supportive


There is no such thing as a stupid question. Please make sure you utilize this group to help you and your family. Feel free to ask questions if you’re uncertain, confused, frustrated, or need any other assistance. I’m here to help and support you in the most genuine way possible. Seriously, I want to see your family succeed.

One more thing before you go…

One last thing – don’t forget to use the hashtag: #OwnYourDegree

It’s our battle cry as we strive to make sure that upon graduation students own their degree. Not the bank. Not Sallie Mae. Not anyone else, but them. Use it in our group. Join the movement.

To you and your family’s success (and hopefully our new friendship),

Gabrielle McCormick and The Scholarship Informer Team
