As soon as this school year is over, current high school juniors will qualify for many college scholarships that are open to high school seniors for 2014-2015. Asking teachers for letters of recommendation for scholarships now, before the school year ends, is a way to get a jump on the competition. Most students wait until the fall to ask for theirs.
A lot of scholarship work can be done in the summer before the senior year, and already having letters of recommendation is a big part of the process. This is another way to break it down into do-able steps, which is so important for a busy senior’s life.
Start early, apply for more scholarships, and increase the chances of winning money for college!
