HS4CC CHALLENGE: Pick 5

There are a handful of scholarships your teen can apply for now -and a CHALLENGE for you! Make the most of their vacation period between Thanksgiving and Christmas by applying for FIVE scholarships. Unless the criteria specifically exclude your teen, it’s fair game! Even if your teen won’t graduate from high school this May, awards can usually be held until graduation- even if it is a a few years away. I challenge you to pick 5 and go for it!

This list curated from JLV College Counseling, my favorite scholarship site on the web!!
