Worried about how to pay for college this fall? There are many scholarships with late deadlines, some extending into late summer! Instead of lamenting the high cost of college or the loans you’ll have to take, invest your time in earning scholarships!
Here are some resources to help you get started:
- Find a selection of late-deadline scholarships in this article from U.S. News & World Report.
- Check out my financial aid/scholarships page for freshman or transfer applicants, which includes a list of vetted scholarship search sites.
Keep in mind that competition may be fierce in larger, national scholarships that have online applications. Consider applying to smaller, local scholarships where you have a better chance of winning; check local sources, such as Rotary Club, Lions Club, Elks Lodge, credit unions, local businesses, employers, and labor unions, or do an online search for “local scholarships” (try adding your zip code to the search) to find scholarship listings and resources. For more tips on local scholarships, check out this article from U.S. News & World Report.
