It’s that time of year again—a time of whining about essays, entrance exams, scholarship applications and other items of an academic nature. Of course, it’s pretty silly to whine about so many things that are strictly for your own benefit—particularly the ones that don’t cost anything!—but that hasn’t stopped prospective college students yet.
With November being National Scholarship Month, it’s a good time to start applying if you haven’t already. Scholarship money is free money, and shouldn’t be overlooked no matter what. Even if you think you’re getting money from a tutoring program, a test score, or from another source, apply for every scholarship you can to ensure that college is as affordable—possibly even as free—as it can be.
Use this National Scholarship Month Checklist to help save yourself as much money as you can on your education.
