Scholarship advice? When should I start looking?
Office Hours #4: AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Mark Eagle
This question was posed by a question during one of our most recent "CareerVillage Office Hours" sessions. During Office Hours sessions, we invite students to pose questions related to a specific topic. In this case, the topic was preparing for life after high school. If you answer this question, we will reach out to the students who attended this office hours session to inform them of your response, and all students on CareerVillage will benefit. If you would be interested in hosting an office hours session on a particular topic, please reach out to our staff!
scholarships tuition paying-for-college finances financial-aid
Apply, apply, apply. The more scholarships you apply to, the more likely you are to receive some aid. And the more aid you get, the less financial strain you have to put on your education. And of course, keep applying for scholarships once you get to college. Every little bit helps. Sometimes scholarship opportunities are bundled with paid internships once you reach college, which can be a big boost in funds to pay tuition and other college costs. While some scholarships might be restricted to high school seniors only, a majority are not. It’s important to pay attention to the requirements of a scholarship, but it’s also important to realize there are scholarship opportunities for just about every grade level for both high school and college—including graduate schools.
Hope this helps! Best of luck!
