4. Save Money
As a student, you may be wondering, “where am I even going to get money to save?!” It may be difficult to make more money as a student but it’s certainly easy to cut back in some areas. Consider shopping at low-cost supermarkets like Aldi or cutting your trips to Starbucks down to once a week.
What am I saving my money for? It helps to have some cash on hand after graduation—just in case getting a job by June doesn’t quite work out for you. This money can be used for road trips to job interviews or to help chip in for groceries with your parents.
Need Money to Pay for College?
Every semester, Fastweb helps thousands of students pay for school by matching them to scholarships, grants, and internships, for which they actually qualify. You'll find scholarships like the Sallie Mae's $1,000 Plan for College Sweepstakes, and easy to enter scholarships like Niche $2,000 No Essay Scholarship, and internships with companies like Apple, Google, Dreamworks, and even NASA!
