Summer Break Scholarships: How, When & Where to Apply
They call it summer break for a reason! Even if you’re working full-time at a job or internship this summer, there is one big time drain missing from your life: homework. Not to mention, there are no after-school clubs, athletics or programs to attend. That’s a pretty big relief after the busy year you’ve had, right? Well, while you have less on your plate and you’re kicking your feet up after work or summer school, it’s important not to slow down on your scholarship search. Fortunately for you, we’ve found summer scholarships that are as equally laid back as your summer break should be. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you apply: • Log on to Fastweb regularly throughout your summer to see your new scholarships. • Organize your scholarships by deadline (luckily, we do that for you) and apply to those with the earliest deadlines first. • Devote one night each week to applying for scholarships. These summer break scholarships don’t take a lot of time, so you just need to devote one hour a week. • Give it your all! Just like any other scholarship application, proofread and give each application your best. So take pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard – and get started on applying for the following summer break scholarships:
