RHINELANDER - Paying for college can be difficult.
The Nicolet College Foundation wants to help students earn the degree they're working for.
But now, the foundation is using a different way to connect students to scholarships.
The foundation will now only accept scholarship applications online.
The online process can help students find more scholarships to apply for.
"We have so many more. Literally scholarship opportunities numbering in the hundreds for students. For a small community college, I think that's something to brag about," said Heather Schallock, Executive Director of the Nicolet College Foundation.
The foundation has different types of scholarships available for all types of students.
But not all students take advantage of scholarships.
"It's human nature to assume that doesn't apply to me, I'll never get it, I'm not good enough, whatever label you want to put on it. I think it's easy to assume that's for somebody else and my message is these can be for you," said Schallock.
The scholarships come from donors that have personal ties to Nicolet.
The deadline to apply for scholarships is March 7th.

VILAS COUNTY - When Dee Burlingame walks into the Sayner Cemetery, she walks to the very back of it, near the wooded area.
"When we bought that plot we did so laughing and saying that the deer would come and run across us," said Burlingame.
Dee and her husband of more than 34 years, John Burlingame, have called Sayner their home for many years, even though they met in Cleveland, Ohio. But about a year ago, Dee's life took an unexpected turn.
