SALT LAKE CITY, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Described by Bloomberg Business as a champion for reducing college costs everywhere, Steven C. Roberts is on a mission to end the knee-jerk dependence students and their families have on student loans. Some 70 percent of college students take out loans, carrying an average debt of $30,000+, which they often struggle to pay off. But, according to Roberts, there are plenty of lesser-known resources people could be taking advantage of if only they knew about them.
Roberts, who is the author of Winning the Money Game in College: Any Major and Any GPA Can Finish College Debt-Free or Better and the creator of the new "Get Cash for College Internet Coaching Program," has already helped thousands of students save thousands of dollars on their college educations. He began studying the subject when his parents announced they could not fund his education after his sister was seriously injured in an accident. Roberts was so good at finding money that his 2008 engineering degree was more than paid for by 11 scholarships and grants.
