Scholarships Available for Spring 2021
With the March/Spring break approaching, we wanted to share a list of scholarships (over $850,000) that are available to students over the break. March Break Scholarships
Last time we sent out a list like this some students were unable to access it at school or from their school emails because of the school boards firewall settings, so we recommend that you make a copy, download as a pdf or download as an excel file before sharing it with your students.
Not all awards will apply to all students. For students to get a list customized to them and weekly email reminders of deadlines, they should create a profile on ScholarTree. At the top left, they can use the filter "Applications Open" to only see those scholarships that are currently accepting applications.
Scholarship Information ...
In addition to completing university and college applications and finishing school with a strong academic average, high school seniors should also devote some time to apply for scholarships. They are an excellent way to supplement the cost of tuition, room and board, books and other expenses and the best part is that they don’t have to be paid back. EVER. That’s free money, people...why not take advantage of it?
If the thought of winning a scholarship seems impossible, you’re probably not looking in the right places. Sure, there will be lots of competition but if you only apply for the scholarships that pertain specifically to you and your unique situation, your chances of winning increase significantly. Check out the links to some popular scholarship databases below, set up a unique profile, and you will find plenty of scholarships you will be eligible for; some are easy, some require work and some are downright strange but you won’t receive any awards unless you apply...so get started!
