El Segundo, CA, March 19, 2012
As many as 200,000,000 people will be watching this month’s March Madness college basketball games, and GoBankingRates.com would like to help participating schools take advantage of their time in the spotlight.
Attending a four-year university in-state will cost an average of $8,244 this year in tuition and fees alone, which means high school seniors who are considering the schools they’ll apply to in the spring will undoubtedly be looking for ways to save on tuition.
Go Banking Rates will be featuring an article about each college participating in the March Madness tournament, detailing the cost of attendance and how students can reduce their total student loan amounts (http://www.gobankingrates.com/loans/student-loans/) through financial aid and scholarships. We’re providing an opportunity for competing schools to provide their own explanation as to why they should be a top choice among college applicants, attract students who may otherwise not have these universities on their radars, and cultivate awareness around the specific scholarship and grant opportunities available.
“Being a leading financial resource for day-to-day consumers is as important to us as a college education is for many teens. The rising cost of education is something families need to understand and prepare for, especially in today’s economy,” states GoBankingRates Editor, Casey Bond. Ms. Bond adds, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to highlight some great solutions for college tuition financial management in association with the March Madness tournament.”
