Summer is Just Around the Corner!

13 May

Nobody knows that better than the kids who are counting down the days until the last school bell.  Here’s a word of advice to those returning to school in September as high school seniors with plans for college.

  • Start researching scholarships now for your college freshman year. Some programs may take up to a year before they make a final determination.
  • Carefully read the eligibility requirements and application instructions CAREFULLY. For example, residency status may have to be met for some scholarships if you plan to attend school out of state.
  • Many scholarships require that their applicants have a volunteer record or support a worthy cause. There are even scholarships for young people ambitious enough to start their own business.

Keep in mind that scholarships can be based on financial need, academic scores, honors, ethnicity, physical attributes or disabilities, or organizational affiliations, such as military service.

Remember to keep a record of your volunteer and community service time, also any clubs or Society’s where you are an active member.

Good Luck!
