world kindness day

Be Rewarded for Your Kindness to Others

On this date in 1997, a small collection of humanitarian groups got together and started what is now known as World Kindness Day — a single day of the year (November 13) when everyone is encouraged to do something for someone else. It doesn’t have to be something monumental, either. Sure, you could collect clothes for the homeless or start a toy drive for children this holiday season, but something as simple as saying “hello” to a stranger counts, too. Just think of all the moments in your day where one small gesture could make a huge difference in someone’s life; such as that girl sitting alone at lunch, who may be reaching her breaking point, but a few minutes of your time sharing a meal could be all she needs to see a light in the darkness. Or maybe, holding the door open for an elderly person would demonstrate that courtesy and kindness still exists. You could even surprise a few people by paying for their coffee in the drive-thru at Starbucks on your way into class or work. The possibilities are endless.

10 Fall Scholarships for High School Sophomores

It is said that money can’t buy happiness, but it sure can make paying for college a heck of a lot easier. That’s why it’s so important for high school sophomores to get their feet wet when it comes to the scholarship search process. Very few students are lucky enough to win an award on their very first attempt. In fact, it can take several applications before students figure out how to write a winning scholarship essay or how to secure the perfect letters of recommendation. If students wait until senior year to start applying for scholarships, it not only reduces their opportunities for winning awards, but it can also increase their stress levels. By setting aside time each month to work on scholarships during their sophomore year, students can build their confidence while building their financial aid nest egg. To get them started, we have put together a list of 10 scholarships for high school sophomores that are currently accepting applications this fall.

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!
