  • Something interesting I found...

    Apparently, an actual Studebaker scholarship exists! Considering my rear end will be sent out with my knapsack and bathtub bourbon to college next year, this could prove to be very useful. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm personally wondering if this is even genuine.

    It is genuine. Many of us either belong to the foundation or have contributed to it.

        Believe me sir I will try my best to actually get an education. With how uncertain the job market is, I'm wondering if even going to college is a good idea. That being said, I am honestly looking forward to the experience and if I play my cards right, I should emerge with no debt to my name. That is what freedom feels like!

          I'm not sure what your course of study is but to arrive 4-5 years from now with a degree and no debt is all good. The jobs are out there for the ambitious folks like you that choose a viable major and carry it to completion.

          My four grandkids vary in age from 19-26. All are in various stages of a college education but we will have a vet, a school teacher, an MBA in fashion and design and a Physical Therapist in the family and they will all succeed into the future.

          Study hard and succeed. Godspeed - Bob

            We have had members in our chapter who received the scholarship to McPherson College....

              I also give a Studebaker related college scholarship that I have endowed. It has been discussed here on the Forum in the past so I will not add more now.

                I wonder if the Foundation would cover a Trade School education? I mean, we DO need mechanics for these cars. There are some excellent trade schools for this in Phoenix, for instance. The world does not continue to go down the road with four-year colleges and universities. It keeps running with tradesmen.

                  My advice is to select your major course of study carefully considering not only the demand for it presently but what the continued prospects are projected to be in the future. Do try to avoid taking up a profession that will be obsoleted by technological change or other displacing economic forces.

                      Another important thing to consider in working towards a career is to to find something you really enjoy. The downside is you might end up having a hard time quiting.

                        A relevant question is do we succeed because we choose careers that we are passionate about or do we become passionate about a career when we find purpose in it? I kind of see both sides but I think Mike Rowe has a pretty good take on it, see the following episode of "The Ben Shapiro Sunday Special".

                          You are correct that a person can become passionate about something by finding a purpose in it. However I believe that you are more likely to succeed if you chose something you are passionate about instead of stumbling into a career and then becoming passionate about it. I knew from the time I was 13 what I wanted to do and never regretted it.
