Simple Scholarships You Can Apply For

I work a lot with the school systems and it seems like every time I talk to students about applying for scholarships they say the same thing.

“It takes too long.”

“There’s nothing out there for me.”

“Even if I applied, I’ll never get it.”

Yes, while some of these responses may seem true, I have found that most of the time, that’s not the case.  For example, if you apply for 10 scholarships and it takes you one hour to finish each application, that’s only 10 hours. If you win just one of those scholarships for $1,000 then your payoff is $100/hr. Not bad.

Also, there are scholarship applications out there they don’t take an hour to complete. In fact, there are some that you just enter your name for a chance to win. That simple.

With that being said, below is a list of those “simple” scholarships. So take a few minutes out of your day and apply. What have you got to lose?
