High school juniors: It’s time to get serious about applying for scholarships!
Scholarships for the Class of 2023
While it's never too soon to begin your college scholarship search, many United States students begin their junior of high school. Your junior year will be busy, filled with campus visits and prep for the college admissions process. Stay on top of the scholarship deadlines and keep applying. The more you apply for, the better your odds. Before you know it, it will be your senior year! Instead of wondering how you’ll pay for college, do something about it; start applying for scholarships in 11th grade! To get this done, consider setting a weekly application goal for yourself at the beginning of the school year. Stick to your scholarship plan; challenge yourself.
Scholarships of the Class of 2023 range from small, school-specific awards to national contests and competitions that give away big scholarship money.
