Don't wait until you fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in the senior year to be disappointed with the limited amount of federal student loans or financial aid you will receive. There are many college scholarships available, this is grant money that doesn't need to be paid back, but you need to be prepared. The Bill Gates Scholarship (officially called Gates Millennium Scholars Program ) which provides financial aid to minority students with high academic credentials and leadership promise, is one example. For those who do well on the PSAT/NMSQT, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation provides both recognition and scholarships. No matter who you are or what your family income level is, there is a scholarship for you.
An Essay on Criticism is one of the first major poems written by the English writer Alexander Pope (1688–1744). It is the source of the famous quotations "To err is human, to forgive divine," "A little learning is a dang'rous thing" (frequently misquoted as "A little knowledge is a dang'rous thing"), and "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread." It first appeared in 1711  after having been written in 1709, and it is clear from Pope's correspondence  that many of the poem's ideas had existed in prose form since at least 1706. Composed in heroic couplets (pairs of adjacent rhyming lines of iambic pentameter ) and written in the Horatian mode of satire, it is a verse essay primarily concerned with how writers and critics behave in the new literary commerce of Pope's contemporary age. The poem covers a range of good criticism and advice, and represents many of the chief literary ideals of Pope's age.
