Paying for College

The scholarships below are listed as a reference or possibility of scholarships for those who are willing to do the work. If a scholarships is expired, check back for updates for the current school year. Most scholarships are updated for the current school year by October. I’m not attaching expiration dates or dollar amounts to these scholarships as it can change from year to year. It’s up to you, our ambitious and tenacious students, to seek out scholarship opportunities! Remember, if it takes you one hour worth of work to apply for a $500 scholarship, and you win that scholarship……you just made $500 an hour! Good luck to all!
