10 Summer Scholarships for High School Seniors

It’s hard to believe that my daughter will be graduating next year. In a mere 11 months, she will no longer be a high school student. She, of course, reminds me of this on a daily basis, but I’m not sure she really understands how quickly that time will pass. Right now, she seems oblivious to the quantity of work that lies ahead. Instead of working on her résumé or writing college essay drafts, she’s working on her tan. One thing, however, has not escaped her to-do list…scholarships. After narrowing down her list of potential colleges, she’s come to the realization that mom was right — college is expensive. And with the cost of attendance ranging between $17,000 and $53,000 per year, she knows that the only way she can possibly afford to attend any of her top choices is to find some free money to help lower her costs. Right now is the perfect time for her to work on scholarship applications, too. She doesn’t have homework or rehearsals to worry about, so she can give them her full attention. If you are a rising high school senior, you too should use the next few weeks to complete as many scholarships as possible. To get you started, here are 10 summer scholarships that you can submit before you head back to school.

Scholarships can help you cover many of your expenses, and may even reduce the need for taking out large student loans or juggling a job while you are in college. The sooner you begin the process the better. It may seem like the majority of programs are only open to seniors, but rest assured, there are plenty of scholarships available for high school sophomores, too. Here are just a few with upcoming deadlines.

10 Fall Scholarships for High School Students

It’s a myth that only high school seniors can apply for college scholarships. In fact, waiting until the last year of high school may actually lower your chances of winning scholarships. Think about it. You’ll be stressed out enough keeping up your grades, taking or retaking college entrance exams, and let’s not forget all those college applications and essays you’ll need to write. Finding time to squeeze in scholarship applications can take a toll on you and if you procrastinate, you could find yourself having to discard a college acceptance letter (or more) simply because you could not secure enough scholarships to help cover the costs of attendance. Wouldn’t it be nice to start senior year knowing you had a fat, scholarship nest egg available to you? It sure would, so I’ve compiled a list of 10 scholarships that are open to all high school students. Here’s the best part; you don’t have to apply to them all at once because there’s at least one award for every month this fall.
