365 Days of Twinipedia - Day 105 | Twins and College scholarship assistance

Day One-Hundred & Five of Twinipedia

Fact #105

Wish we had known this information when we were applying to college!, Guide to Twins author Pamela Prindle Fierro took the time to share some really important information about twins and money assistance for college on the site.  We think this is way cool and think this is a great example of an author using her influence for the better good.  Thanks for this information Pamela!!!!

Pamela shares that "Twins that aren't planning to attend the same college may qualify for scholarships through a twins club or organization."  She recommends to parents of twins to join multiples clubs in their area as well as nationally in order to have the opportunity to apply for these scholarship funds for their twins. 

She notes that the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs is a great resource for finding information about a club in your area.
She also shares that each year, twins that attend the Twins Day Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio have the opportunity to win scholarship money for schooling. 
 "A $1,000 scholarship is given to a set of twins each festival...and the winning pair of twins must be seniors in high school and have attended and registered at least three of the last five festivals."

Lastly she talks about the Northwest Association Mother of Twins Clubs. This club "awards several scholarships per year to those candidates who qualify as a multiple birth and are looking to further their education. Once known as the Twin Scholarship Fund, it is now called the Shan Pynes Scholarship."
