RHINELANDER - Paying for college can be difficult.

The Nicolet College Foundation wants to help students earn the degree they're
working for.

But now, the foundation is using a different way to connect students to
scholarships.

The foundation will now only accept scholarship applications online.

The online process can help students find more scholarships to apply for.

"We have so many more. Literally scholarship opportunities numbering in the
hundreds for students. For a small community college, I think that's something
to brag about," said Heather Schallock, Executive Director of the Nicolet
College Foundation.

The foundation has different types of scholarships available for all types of
students.

But not all students take advantage of scholarships.

"It's human nature to assume that doesn't apply to me, I'll never get it, I'm
not good enough, whatever label you want to put on it. I think it's easy to
assume that's for somebody else and my message is these can be for you," said
Schallock.

The scholarships come from donors that have personal ties to Nicolet.

The deadline to apply for scholarships is March 7th.
