You read recently about Navy providing free science, technology and math classes to qualified applicants.
As I said then, “free” is a pretty good number, but Buick is giving money away, according to email correspondent David Chaitt:
I’d like to extend an invitation to your readers to apply for the first annual Buick Achievers Scholarship Program funded by the GM Foundation, designed to foster excellence both inside and out of the classroom.
Open to high school seniors or high school graduates who will be first-time college students in the fall of 2011, the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program is geared towards students interested in pursuing a course of study that focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math), various design majors, marketing, accounting and finance.
Two levels of scholarship will be awarded:
i. 1,000 Buick Achievers Scholarships of $2,000 available for up to four years, and one additional year for those entering a five-year engineering program.
ii.100 Buick Achievers National Scholarships of up to $25,000 available for up to four years, and one additional year for those entering a five-year engineering program.
All applications must be submitted electronically between February 7, 2011 and March 31, 2011.

I imagine that most the readership here joins me in ineligibility for such a program due to superannuation. Which means that a fair number are sweating out college expenses.
Well, here you go.
