When to apply for scholarships
Apply for scholarships early and often. Some scholarship deadlines are as early as a year before you start college. You don’t need to wait until you’ve made your final decision about your school to apply.
But don’t worry if you missed out on some of the earliest scholarship applications. There are lots of scholarship opportunities out there, all with different deadlines.
Apply for scholarships every year you’re in college, too—there are many scholarships for current college students.
