Below is a second installment of scholarships for all of you prospective and current college students. It is getting later in the year to apply for many of these, but it is never too late to apply. There are hundreds of scholarships still open and available for those of you starting in the fall, or spring.
I found this awesome list from a site managed by The University of Texas Pan American (www.utpa.edu). It’s JUST a list. It’s really for informational purposes only and is not a guarantee of winning any of these.
I checked them out myself and they are all legit. Always watch for those scholarship search engines or companies that seek you out. There are scams to be aware of when applying for scholarships. I know it sounds scary here, but believe it or not many people’s identity and security are taken through scholarship scams.
A few tips and pointers…
In your search for scholarships, be sure to keep in mind of the following things:
1. Start the search. Do NOT rely on others
2. Don’t burn your bridges
know your allies, references always help
