How we can help

Admissions Assistance

The goal of this workbook is to give you all the information & step by step guidance that you need to get into college so you feel more prepared and confident to navigate the application process on your own.

Scholarship Assistance

Current students should take advantage of this virtual scholarship challenge to learn where to find the various scholarship programs available, and find out what it takes to win the scholarship awards.

College is hard enough.
The application process doesn't have to be.

With tuition escalating at alarming rates and student loan interest rates rising faster than ever, just thinking about the financial burden of attending a college can be gut-wrenching for both parents and children.  

It’s no secret that educational grants and scholarships are the much-needed routes to secure your children's college dreams in such an unprecedented economy.  


Being stress-free from the gruesome financial hassle of higher education. Helping your child secure opportunities that will lead to their financial freedom. And giving them a direction to turn their passionate goals into a living reality.
But there’s a catch! Winning financial aid is not child's play. Most students are under the impression that there aren't many scholarships available for them, or they may not meet the eligibility criteria. Even if they manage to find a suitable scholarship, they quickly get overwhelmed by the tedious application process. With the highly intense competition, many students sabotage their chances of getting a scholarship even before starting.

Here’s the thing

The real reason why many students struggle to get into their dream college and win scholarships is the lack of knowledge and guidance.

Millions of dollars in scholarships go unclaimed each year because many students don’t think they will qualify for scholarships and it's hard to find the right scholarships and then go through the application process alone. It is difficult to achieve a debt-free degree by sifting through free internet resources, writing ineffective admission essays, or blindly following the blind.  
It doesn’t have to be this way for you! At Hive, we have given a flying start to the academic life of many students with result-oriented guidance. And we can help you too!

Meet Our Founder, Christen Arafeh

"I knew at a young age that I wanted to go to college, but I didn't realize how overwhelming the application process actually was. I was a first generation college student and I knew only two things about college: 
1) I couldn't afford to pay for tuition and 
2) I didn't want any part of taking out student loans. 
Confession: I earned more than $900,000 in scholarships for my own education, essentially paying me to go to college. I've learned what works in the scholarship world, and what doesn't, and I want to share that with you. I saw the first hand the lack of support there was for college bound students trying to navigate the maze of college admissions. I founded this company as a way to help you get the knowledge you need to feel confident about making those big decisions about your education and your future."

It isn’t where you came from. It’s where you’re going that counts.
