My mother used to tell me that time went by faster as you got older, and I’m beginning to believe her. It just doesn’t seem possible that the school year is over already. Where did the time go? I’m sure high school seniors can relate.

Luckily, there are still plenty of scholarships and contests open that can help students earn some college cash, whether they are attending school in a few months or a few years. Here are just some of the sizzling summer scholarships waiting to be won!

Not All Student Loans Are Created Equal

It’s not very often that I get excited about student loans. In fact, I spend most of my time helping students find ways to avoid them, if at all possible.  But sometimes, scholarships just aren’t enough to cover all your college expenses. Even if you’ve completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and exhausted all your federal loan options, your dream school may still be out of reach. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t take out a private student loan until you take a look at the new program being offered by Discover Student Loans. Whether you’re enrolling in an undergraduate or graduate program, pursuing a health professions degree or going to law school, here are some reasons the Discover Student Loan Program is worth a look.

Last-Minute Financial Aid

Last-Minute Financial Aid for High School Seniors

In a few short weeks, high school seniors across the country will be graduating. Although this joyous occasion is one to be celebrated, it’s often a wake-up call for many students that college is just around the corner, which means tuition, housing, and other fees will all be due very soon. Those who did not save for college, or enrolled at a school beyond their financial means, may find themselves clamoring to find financial aid to help cover all their impending expenses. At this point, it may seem like an impossible undertaking, but there are resources available to help those who still have insufficient funds for the upcoming semester. Here are just a few places seniors can look for last-minute financial aid.

Undergraduate Scholarships

5 Tips for Locating Undergraduate Scholarships

Remember your senior year of high school? It seemed like there was a ton of scholarship opportunities everywhere you turned. Schools practically showered you with grants and scholarships, hoping you would choose them. But now that you have a year or two of college under your belt, some of those scholarships have expired or may have even renewed at a lower amount. If you were lucky enough to maintain the same funding level, the increase in tuition rates and other fees may still have left you with a gap in financial aid. Don’t worry, you are not alone. Many undergraduate students neglect to think long-term when it comes to their financial aid plan. The good news is that there are plenty of undergraduate scholarships available. You just need to know where to find them.

Scholarships for Single Mothers

Scholarships for Single Mothers

As a mother of four, I have a great deal of respect for single mothers, especially those who make the decision to go to college. When I went back to school in 2004, I was lucky enough to have a husband and two sons in high school who could help take care of my younger children and our home. Without them, I don’t know how I would have balanced everything without going crazy. Single mothers, on the other hand, not only face the same challenges of juggling classes and coursework, but they also have the responsibility of caring for their children, providing financial support, and keeping their households in order. It’s no easy feat, especially if they don’t have any nearby family or friends to help. Even those who do have a strong support system may be faced with another obstacle – financial aid. Single parents must make tough decisions regarding money, which may cause them to postpone their education or take fewer courses per semester. If they drop below part-time status, it could reduce their eligibility for certain financial aid programs. Without federal and institutional support, many single parents simply cannot afford to continue (or even start) their degree programs. Thankfully, there are scholarships for single mothers that can help lighten their financial burden and make their dreams of a college education a reality.
