My mother used to tell me that time went by faster as you got older, and I’m beginning to believe her. It just doesn't seem possible that the school year is over already. Where did the time go? I’m sure high school seniors can relate. It was just a few weeks ago that most of them were trying to decide where to go to college this fall, and now they’re scrambling to find money to pay for their tuition and other fees. Luckily, there are still plenty of scholarships and contests open that can help students earn some college cash, whether they are attending school in a few months or a few years. Here are just some of the sizzling summer scholarships waiting to be won!

It’s Never Too Late for Scholarships
