Splish Splash... It's Time to Apply more than Sunblock!

Updated: Jun 20


Applying for college scholarships doesn't stop just because summer break is upon us! Stay focused on the bigger picture - Building your College Fund. Summertime is a great time to pick up the pace and knock out as many scholarships as you can.


Did you know that your high school student spends about 1,080 hours in school? That's a 6 hour day for 8 months. Now think about it. Summer break means they gain somewhere between 405 to 473 hours to do whatever they want! Why not encourage them to use some of that time to find scholarships to reduce the cost of their college education?! Building their college fund only takes 15 minutes a day. They can so do that poolside or sunbathing by the beach! Most of them are on their phones anyway. Makes sense?
