Scholarship Season begins in 9 days

College scholarships that are awarded by non-profits, businesses and foundations as well as contests are in full swing. Although there are some scholarship competitions just about every month, the  majority of application deadlines begin in December and extend through April. Has your high school senior developed a list of available scholarships to pursue? He needs to do so asap. To be one of the "lucky" families with a well-funded high school senior who has won a large number of scholarships, your student has to aggressively seek scholarship opportunities, schedule required activities and follow through by deadlines. Most seniors do best when parents support them in the process by helping to find opportunities and manage a scholarship application calendar. Spread the word in your network of family and friends that your high school senior is seriously looking for scholarships. By doing so you'll have an extended committee of people looking for opportunities for you.

I do agree with all the ideas you've presented in your post. They're really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
