Black Friday Scholarships & Internships

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

The holidays have arrived earlier than ever this season (at least it feels that way). No matter which holiday you observe, one type of “holiday” seems to be shared by everyone – deals and steals.

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. It seems as though everyone wants in on the action, whether it’s waiting in line at a store to snag the latest tech or surfing the web for sales from the comfort of your couch.

Yep – everyone wants the steals and deals offered on Black Friday and, of course, Cyber Monday, too. But, are you aware of the 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. These companies also offer exciting internships, awarding amazing opportunities to students like you.

Instead of spending this year, why not earn your way to a brighter future? Check out these Black Friday- and Cyber Monday-themed scholarships and internships: you may find that your deal of the century is your scholarship win or internship-turned-employment offer!
