It’s the most exciting time of the year – and we are not referring to the craziness of holiday gatherings and final exams. No, we are talking about Scholarship Season!

Get a head start on your quest for money for school by making use of online scholarship listing sites (like Zinch.com), talking to your guidance counselor and local community foundation and signing up for scholarship notifications through Google alerts. Don’t forget to note the deadline dates for all programs you are interested in!

Over the next couple months, many large, public scholarship programs will accept applications for awards for the 2013-2014 school year. Here are just a few of them:

  • Burger King Scholars Program
  • AXA Achievement Community Scholarship Program
  • SanDisk Scholars Fund
  • KFC Colonel’s Scholars
  • Best Buy’s @ 15 Scholarship Program

Good luck and happy scholarship hunting!
