Make a Difference Day

Make a Difference Day Could Lead to College Cash

This Saturday, many secondary schools and colleges will be celebrating Make a Difference Day by encouraging their students to participate in volunteer activities and other events that seek to support their communities. It’s a great opportunity for students to give back, but also a chance for them to earn potential college scholarships. Many state programs, as well as some private scholarships, now require a minimum number of community service hours to compete for college cash. For some students, the thought of working for free or carving out time in their already hectic schedules may not seem all that appealing, but I would encourage them to make the time.

October Scholarships

Spooktacular Scholarships with October Deadlines

October has always held a special place in my heart. It’s the time of year when Mother Nature turns my backyard into this amazing palette of color and the stores are covered in a blanket of pink. My weekends are packed with walks and other breast cancer awareness events, and I begin the process of transforming my mundane home into a haunted mansion. Soon, fat pumpkins with menacing grins will adorn my doorstep, warning visitors to beware. Although October is full of frivolity, it’s also one of the best months for you to ‘carve out’ some time for scholarships. There are many fall programs available to high school and college students, but just like ghosts, they will evaporate soon.

Scholarship Award

And the Scholarship Emmy Goes to…

This weekend, the Emmy Awards will recognize the best and the brightest that television has to offer. Actors, actresses, producers and others are all eagerly awaiting their chance to grasp the winged, golden woman who signifies that they have risen amongst their peers. Too bad there isn’t an awards show to recognize the scholarship programs and providers who have also gone above and beyond in their ranks. It’s not very often that you find providers who offer students the chance to cover the majority of their educational expenses, allowing them to focus on their studies and soar to new heights, but there are some scholarship programs that are truly exceptional. If the Emmy Awards organizers ever consider adding scholarships to their ballot, these awards should definitely be at the top of the list.

Rinse and Repeat

Rinse & Repeat: Scholarships You Can Apply to Every Month!

“If at first you don’t succeed – try, try again!” My mother was fond of using these words of wisdom to motivate me, whether I was trying to complete a double-somersault off our pool’s diving board or attempting to score higher on my college entrance exams, she always encouraged me to give it another shot. In the world of scholarships, getting a second chance doesn’t happen very often, at least not on a consistent basis. Most programs are offered annually, which means students need to be vigilant and keep track of those awards they missed and reapply again next year. Even if students use a scholarship search service, it can seem like a lot of work keeping up with everything. I get it; winning scholarships isn’t easy, but just like basketball, it may take a few shots before students score a slam dunk. The only way to win is to keep at, so I have compiled a list of what I like to call ‘rinse and repeat’ scholarships. These awards are available every month, so students can keep applying until they get it right.

September Scholarship Countdown

Now that summer has ended, students are finally heading back to school. For high school seniors, the days of relaxing by the pool and sleeping in are definitely over. The next few months will be packed with visiting campuses, filling out college applications, and writing those dreaded college essays. Of course, another task that should already be on their plates is applying for scholarships, but they aren’t the only ones who should be looking for free money for college. High school freshmen, sophomores and juniors should begin looking for opportunities, too, as well as current college students. There are plenty of big money scholarships with deadlines in September, so everyone should be setting aside some time to apply for awards this month. Here are just a few of the scholarship opportunities waiting to be won.
