Need scholarships? Have limited time? Check these out!

Not all scholarships require mass quantities of work.  For example, high school and college students can apply for the Suntrust Sweepstakes through May 9, 2012.  The payoff is $1,000.  It takes seconds to apply.  High school seniors and current college students can apply multiple times. To enter the Suntrust Sweepstakes, go to: www.suntrusteducation.com/sweeps.
Another great scholarship for high school students is the Sammy Award.  The $1,000 Sammy Award requires that high school seniors who participate in athletics and athletic clubs, with a gpa of at least 3.2, write an essay about milk.  It is due March 19, 2012.  Apply at: www.sammyapplication.com.
The American Fire Sprinkler Association Scholarship is also a simple scholarship to pursue.  Read an essay online and then answer questions.  It's that simple.  This $2,000 scholarship is for high school seniors and they award 10 of them. To apply go to: http://afsascholarship.org/hsinformation.html.
These are all national awards.  Don't forget to apply for local scholarships promoted by your high school or college.  The odds of winning those are higher due to a lower number of students applying.
The best scholarship strategy is to apply for as much as you can without jeopardizing your grades.
