Summer Scholarship Melt! Apply to these 18 scholarships before September.

Summertime is the best time to apply for college scholarships. I know you are probably groaning and rolling your eyes as you apply more sunscreen by the pool but hear me out.

Most students are so focused on their summer adventures and enjoying their time away from all things brainpower that they are missing potential jackpots–summer scholarship deadlines are still in full swing and there's less competition.

I've provided 23 scholarships for you to take a look at with July and August deadlines but make sure to find ones yourself. If you are not sure how to do that join me for one of my free scholarship workshops. I will teach you how and where to find scholarships in places where families never look.

As a former Director of Undergraduate Admissions, I have seen so many families struggle at this time of year when the first college bill is due. It's a super emotional time full of excitement, guilt, fear, and stress. Telling them how to bridge the gap with scholarship opportunities while they feel overwhelmed is like eating ice cream in front of a heat lamp. Impossible.

So the goal here is to start now. Sit down as a family to discuss how to handle the cost of attendance, create a college list with a focus on affordability, and set your annual scholarship goal today. Time is on your side!

Quick Tip!

Check out these older blog posts to start building your scholarship list. The deadlines will have passed but most scholarship sponsors update their scholarships annually. So this means you should add the scholarships to your scholarship tracker, click the link in the blog post and update the date so that you will remember to apply for them. Need a scholarship tracker? Join me for my free scholarship workshop where I share it with all my attendees.
