Scholarships are a great way to earn money for college. While college can be expensive (tuition, books, etc.) don’t let the cost deter you from attending. Keep in mind that even if you are not an “A” student, you may still be eligible for scholarships based on need, athletic ability, various talents, or if you plan to pursue a particular field of study.
3 Easy Tips for Applying to Scholarships
Just Do It!
Apply to as many scholarships as you can because you have nothing to lose, and a lot to gain. Many scholarships offer the convenience of applying online.
Be mindful of deadlines because you don’t want to miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime. Aim to submit your applications at least 2-3 weeks before the deadline.
If you are unsure of how to search for scholarships, ask for help. Guidance counselors usually have tons of resources that can help you. You can also check your local library and websites like Fastweb.com, Scholarshipexperts.com or studentscholarships.org for scholarship opportunities.
