14 College Scholarships You've Probably Never Heard Of Before
More scholarships now = fewer student loan payments later.
Student loan debt has been a big burden for Gen X'ers and millennials, but if you're currently in school or about to enroll, it's not too late for you to reduce the amount you need to borrow. Scholarships are one relatively easy (and FREE) way to cut that number down and graduate with less debt and more financial freedom.
To find some interesting scholarships that are due in the next couple of months, I reached out to Scholarships.com, and wow, did they deliver.
I really hope that you find something here that you want to apply to. But if none of these scholarships are calling your name, do some more research on your own to find some scholarships that do. And as you continue your scholarship search, don't forget to ask your school's financial aid office and check out more ways to find scholarships.
Also, remember that when it comes to scholarships, every little bit really does help. While a $2,000 scholarship will only cover a small portion of the average student's yearly tuition, that's still $2,000 (plus interest!) that you won't have to borrow and worry about paying back later.
