7 Scholarships!

There aren’t a lot of scholarships left at this time of year because most have been awarded. Look at these as “below the radar” opportunities! Keep watching for a new batch of scholarships to open up this summer.

Now that you’re gaining traction by Homeschooling for College Credit, your new assignment is to apply, apply, and apply for scholarships!

My recipe for the MINIMUM number of applications they should fill out each year is based on the cost they need to cover the coming school year.  Until they walk the stage with their degree, keep applying!! If your teen is still in high school (and will be in high school this coming school year) that doesn’t mean you can’t start now! Many scholarships are open to younger students. If won, those scholarships will simply be held until your teen has graduated high school and can use them.

For every $100 your teen needs,  apply for 1 scholarship.

This year’s need $100 = apply for 1 scholarship

This year’s need $1,000 = apply for 10 scholarships

This year’s need $10,000 = apply for 100 scholarships

Every. Single. Year.
