April Scholarships

Spring Into April With Scholarships!

Can you feel it? I know I can. Spring fever is in full bloom; students around the country are battling full-blown cases of senioritis and trying to recover from Spring Break. Many spent the last few weeks enjoying their time off and soaking in the warmer weather, instead of tackling their college to-do lists and searching for scholarships, and now they are in panic mode. You may have even seen a few of them stumbling around your campus. Just look for the students with bloodshot eyes or those who may be pulling out their hair by the handful. Honestly, they should have put more time and effort into their college planning tasks, but not all is lost.
