Tomorrow Starts Today: March Scholarship Deadlines


With the rising cost of higher education, students are turning more and more to grants and scholarships to offset any loans. This month, you’re in LUCK! It’s time to spring into action and apply for the following opportunities that have deadlines approaching.
When it comes to developing a strategy for figuring out ways to pay for college, a good first course of action is filling out the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). According to the College Board, two-thirds of full-time undergraduate students receive free money for college simply by completing the FAFSA, with aid coming from federal and state sources, colleges, or private organizations. Once you’ve completed filling out the FAFSA and are ready to begin applying for other scholarships and grants, be sure to check our blog every month for new opportunities that can really pay off.
