Are you enjoying your summer break? Hopefully, you’ve had a chance to relax and enjoy the sunshine a little bit. If you’re a rising high school senior or an incoming college freshmen, chances are your summer is packed full of things other than trips to the beach or watching episodes of Orange is the New Black. Some of you are probably busy working on your volunteer hours, squeezing in a few college visits, or working at a job to save some money for college. Well, I hate to add more to your already busy summer schedule, but there is one other thing you and every other high school and college student should be working on this summer — scholarships! If you’ve put off applying for scholarships during the school year, now is the time to get to work. You’ve already missed hundreds of opportunities, but there are still plenty of scholarships with summer deadlines waiting to be won. In fact, here are 10 July scholarships to get you started.
Recent high school graduates and current undergraduate students with a 3.0 grade point average or higher may be eligible for this $1,000 scholarship. Three awards are offered annually. Deadline: July 1.
High school seniors and older may be eligible for this $1,000 scholarship. Students must create a résumé based on the life of a fictional or non-fictional character. One award is available. Deadline: July 15.
Students 13 years of age and older may apply for this $1,500 creative writing scholarship. To enter, students must write a short essay explaining which ice cream flavor best represents their personality. Deadline: July 31.
While spending your summer applying for scholarships doesn't seem like much fun, it sure beats spending the next 10 to 20 years paying off student loans. Even winning one award can help reduce your overall student loan debt and your stress levels.
