The Scholarship System: 6 Steps on How to Win College Scholarships and Secure Financial Aid

25 Scholarships to Apply to By the End of Spring Break

With spring break here, students have some extra time on their hands. While we certainly believe students should take this time to relax and catch up on some R&R, we also think it is a great time to knock out some applications.

Here is a list of 25 scholarships to apply to before the end of Spring Break. Some deadlines are as late as April 30th. Either way, these next few weeks are major deadline weeks so you don’t want to miss out!

And if you are curious as to how we found these, check out our free training on how to uncover legitimate scholarships, “6 Steps to Quickly Secure Scholarships for College.” This training is geared towards teaching parents what they need to know about paying for college so that you can help your child avoid student loan debt.
