Applying for Scholarships
I am a 2018 high school graduate on a gap year. I am using my time away from school to apply for more aid and really getting to myself as well.
As I try to find scholarships, I notice most are for those who are seniors in high school and graduating in 2019. I have gotten lucky with some, emailing them to let them know my situation.
Where can I find scholarships for gap year students? For students who plan to enroll in college in the fall of 2019 but are not in high school?
Are there any scholarships for students in online college? Because this is my case as well. #scholarship #financial-aid #college #gapyear #online #geneds

I applaud you for taking a gap year, a lot of self reflection and growth can occur during that time. I personally just graduated from college, which became virtual the last few months. During this time, the financial aid department at my school provided several different scholarships, loans, and guidance to students needing help. I would reach out to the financial department for the school you are attending in the fall, explain to them you are a new student/graduate of 2018, and they should be able to provide you specific plans or links to scholarships that they offer.
