The whirlwind of college tours and applications is often accompanied by the looming question, “How am I going to pay for this?”
When it comes to scholarship hunting, getting started is half the process. And the truth is, it is never too early to start looking for scholarships. (High school juniors, listen close!) With a little bit of hustle, you’ll find that the scholarship hunt is well worth your while.
We’ve created the timeline above to keep you on track and ready to graduate with a spectrum of scholarships to fund your future endeavors. Here are a few tips to remember as you begin the search:
1. It is never too late to start applying. Even as winter break approaches, there is still plenty of scholarship money to be had. Don’t ever convince yourself that you missed the boat!
2. Utilize your resources. Sit down with your high school’s college and career advisor to get expert advice on writing cover letters and resumés. Ask your favorite teachers for letters of recommendation, and create profiles with scholarship websites to stay current on open applications.
3. Stay on top of your schedule. This process can be overwhelming, so organization is key! Create a calendar of the scholarships you want to apply for and when they are due. If you let weeks go by without keeping up, you may suddenly find yourself drowning in essays and scrambling for recommendations two days before the deadline.
