15 Minutes Could Save You $500 for College

Now that school is out and you have more free time on your hands, consider setting aside a few minutes each day to work on college scholarships. I’m not talking about an hour or two, just fifteen minutes a day. Heck, you probably spend more time than that fixing your breakfast every morning. You may not think that such a short span of time could ever result in winning any scholarships, but it really can help your build your college nest egg. There are several scholarship programs that are fun and easy to enter. Most require a short essay of 250 words or less, which is basically a long paragraph, but some scholarships require no work at all. You simply complete the online application and throw your name into the pool for a chance to win some college cash. Of course, the more scholarships you complete the more chances you’ll have to win. Here are a few scholarships to get you started.

May Scholarship

10 May Scholarships You Shouldn’t Overlook

It’s hard to believe, but the school year will be coming to a close very soon. High school seniors will be saying good-bye to old friends and familiar places, and juniors are just now realizing that their carefree lives will soon be coming to an end. College students, on the other hand, may be looking forward to a much needed break from the spring semester or heading off to study abroad this summer. But one thing they all have in common is the opportunity to use these final weeks of school to crank out some scholarship applications, and hopefully earn some much needed money for college. The following May scholarships offer something for just about everyone, so I encourage students to apply to as many as possible.

Introducing ‘Shark Tank’ for Scholarships!

Shark TankI am a huge fan of the ABC television show Shark Tank. Each week, I tune in to see what new invention will send Mark Cuban, Mr. Wonderful, and the rest of the millionaires into a feeding frenzy. It’s quite entertaining to see the presenters squirm and stammer, as they try to convince everyone to invest. Although many walk away empty-handed, the exposure alone can help save their product from being shelved, so the stress is definitely worth it. In the past, I have actually tinkered with a few ideas myself.  Two of my ideas include stackable cribs for daycare centers (my husband said they looked like mini-prison cells) and a game that uses professional athlete’s jersey numbers to help teach children simple math problems (What do you get if you add Joe Flacco and Peyton Manning?), but I never did anything with them.
