High School Students: Investigate Scholarship Options Early
These are not the only scholarship awards that have participation requirements. Many of the awards most worth winning have specific eligibility requirements, rather they be a certain GPA, a certain ACT score (just imagine coming across this and realizing the next ACT test day is after the scholarship application deadline), a record of community service, or any number of other criteria. The earlier you investigate scholarship options, the earlier you’ll know not only what’s out there, but what you’ll have to do to win.
By conducting a scholarship search and researching scholarship and grant opportunities early on in your high school career, you can be at an advantage when it comes to scholarship eligibility. Then, when your senior year of high school arrives and you begin the scholarship application process in earnest, you can put your name in for tons of awards for which you’re clearly eligible, rather than beating yourself up and thinking of what could have been.
