Summer is a time to relax, but it’s also a great time to uncover some financial aid, if you know where to look. FastWeb has highlighted a few summer-themed scholarships that are open now (or will be soon) that you can work on while taking breaks from your beach reading.

You may not be eligible for all scholarships. FastWeb recommends that you check the scholarship sponsor Web sites for availability and eligibility.

Field Museum High School Internships
If you find your attention drawn to the birds in the air, the flowers in your garden or the sand at the beach, you may be interested in an internship at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. The application will require a statement of internship goals, a resume and references. Also, museum curators must be contacted for additional information well before the deadline date. The summer would be a great time to get a jump on this opportunity. If you receive the internship, it would be for summer 2008.
Estimated deadline: November 1, 2009

Estimated deadline: May 2009

Harold E. and Ennes Scholarship Fund

Deadline: July 1, 2009
