I’ll never forget the first week of my oldest son’s senior year of high school. He brought home forms for ordering graduation announcements, senior picture submission details, and a list of important dates, most having to do with graduation.
What was missing were instructions on how to find and apply for college scholarships. (The scholarship list was something that was later handed out in the spring.)
New high school seniors and their parents need to realize that NOW is the time to find and apply for college scholarships.
There are many scholarships with early deadlines and waiting until the spring will mean many missed opportunities for students to win money for school. Even if it means doing your own research into how to find and apply for scholarships, DO IT.
Don’t let graduation details and college visits overwhelm you to the point of letting scholarship opportunities slip by!
