Kiara Jones is on a mission to spread her knowledge about scholarships, loan forgiveness programs, and grants.

Kiara graduated with her Bachelors and Masters degree in 5 years, with 0 student loan debt. 

Her journey involves learning that there is over $46 Billion available in grants and scholarships each year... She figured out that its less about being "qualified" for a scholarship, but rather how can you use your story to win these scholarships.

Kiara gives tactical advice as well as a wealth of resources that any students can use to find scholarships. Many of these are free too!
