Everyone wants the steals and deals offered on Black Friday and, of course, Cyber Monday, too. But, are you aware of the Black Friday deals and savings that won’t cost you a dime?

In addition to deals, plenty of retailers offer scholarships, giving away thousands of awards to high school, college and graduate students!

Please note: If scholarship deadlines have passed for the 2014 application cycle, many of these scholarship programs will be taking applications again in 2015. If you are interested in any of these scholarships, make a note to yourself about the name of the scholarship as well as its website. Check the scholarship provider’s website frequently for application updates. Best of luck!
