Saying goodbye to summer isn’t easy. We get that you want to soak up the last days of sun, fun and enjoy the remainder of your summer – who wouldn’t?

Alas, summer is ending and your scholarship search must continue! But, this list of scholarships can allow you to stay on track with your scholarship search, while relishing your last weeks of summer break.

How is this possible, you ask? All of the scholarships on this list have quick and easy applications and, those that have essays are short and sweet. Once you apply, all you have left to do is figure out what to do with all that free time to fill your last days of the season.

By doing so, you’ll really be able to say you accomplished it all this summer: conquering your scholarship applications and taking time to smell the roses.
