10 Fall Scholarships for High School Freshmen

You’ve probably heard the saying, “the early bird gets the worm,” but did you know that it’s also true for scholarships? You don’t have to wait until your senior year of high school to start searching for free money for college. In fact, if you wait too long, you may actually restrict your college choices. How? Think about it. If you don’t start searching for scholarships until you receive your college acceptance letters, you’re not going to have enough time to gather any additional funding that you may need. That’s why it’s so important to start applying as early as possible. The more time you have to complete scholarships, the more time you’ll have to win them, too! You also have a lot less on your plate your freshman year than you do your final year of high school. If you want to give yourself more options when it comes to picking a college, do yourself a favor and start applying for scholarships right now. In fact, you can start with these 10 fall scholarships that are perfect for high school freshmen.

November scholarships

Be Thankful for These November Scholarships

Can you believe Thanksgiving will be here in just a few short weeks? It’s a time not only to enjoy the company of your family and friends (and tons of great food!), but also to reflect upon what you may be grateful for this past year. For new college students, it may be something as simple as surviving your first mid-terms. High school seniors, on the other hand, may simply be thankful for the short break from college applications (breathe, it’s almost over!). We, of course, are thankful for each and every student, parent, and educator who trusts us to help him or her find free money for college. In keeping with the giving spirit of the holiday, we’ve assembled a bountiful list of November scholarships. But, you have to hurry because just like pumpkin pie at grandma’s house, these will disappear soon!

Confucius Says, “Try Your Luck With Scholarships!”

September 29 is Confucius Day. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Confucius, he was one of the first great philosophers. Born in China during 551 B.C., Confucius was a teacher, a politician, and a scholar. Throughout his life, he gave us nearly 500 famous sayings. Many of these can now be found in fortune cookies, but there was one lost nugget of advice that we stumbled upon while researching this wise man — Confucius says, “Try your luck with scholarships!” Who knew that he would have the foresight to encourage high school and college students to search for free money for college? We can only guess that getting an education back then literally cost an arm and a leg. Thank goodness students today don’t have to give a pound of flesh to earn their diploma, but it’s still a fairly expensive endeavor. With this in mind, we pay homage to Confucius by providing this short list of easy scholarships that require nothing more than just a bit of luck to win.
