Your goal is to go to college. You want that postsecondary education, you want the knowledge, the job opportunities, the whole shebang. Then you’re in exactly the right place.

“But this is a page about scholarships.”

I know! And I’m still telling you, this is definitely the right place for you. Whether you’re a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or already enrolled in college earning that fancy degree, scholarships need to be a focus. The younger you start, the more likely you are to put together a sizable nest egg that will help shrink your post-university bills.

There are some nationwide beauties I’ve put together for you, but keep in mind this simple correlation: the more people that can apply for a scholarship, the harder it is to acquire. On top of taking a look at these, you should also keep an eye on scholarships that apply specifically to your state or county.

Get applying, all!
