February is such a polarizing month; you either love it or you hate it. I fall on the ‘love’ side of the fence. As a young girl, I enjoyed getting valentines in elementary school. In high school, I waited patiently to see if Cupid (usually some hot senior) would deliver roses to my homeroom class. College, of course, was a whole, new level of crazy; ambitious young men would go above and beyond to impress us girls. Off-key serenades in the dormitory courtyard, giant banners hanging from buildings, or a 10-pound bar of chocolate were not unheard of on campus during the flirty month of February. Thinking back, I would have much rather received something a bit more tangible…like a college scholarship. Wrap a $5,000 check with a bow and I would have been yours for life – or at least until the end of the semester. If you prefer green over gold, or cash over carnations, check out this lovely list of February scholarships just waiting for their prefect match.
