It is not too late to apply for college scholarships

High school seniors should be hard at work right now applying for scholarships.  But for them to do that, they usually need support and encouragement from parents.  Otherwise, students often assume that mom and dad have their college costs covered, which is often not the case.
Parents should help students search for scholarships.  There are seven primary places to search:
  • high schools in the counselor's office, website or bulletin board and through student clubs and organizations and the parent-teacher organization
  • colleges where students have been accepted 
  • financial institutions where students and parents do banking
  • local and state foundations, organizations and businesses
  • national corporations and organizations
  • contests and competitions
  • popular scholarship search engines like Fastweb.com
Once scholarship leads are located, parents need to help students develop an application plan to meet deadlines. Students and parents should avoid giving up because some scholarship deadlines have passed.  There are deadlines through July for college scholarships.  However, the later families wait, the more limited the selection of available scholarships will be. Priority should be given to local scholarships, scholarships form organizations where students and families have a connection and scholarships with the earliest deadlines.
