15 Feb Easy Scholarships For High School Students
Do you want to find some easy scholarships? Community based scholarships for high school students are easy to apply for and often result in money for most of the people who apply.
Local businesses and community organizations and service clubs often put together scholarships for high school students. These don’t usually provide big money like full tuition, but they are easy scholarships to obtain.
The first step is to talk to your high school guidance counselor about what community scholarships exist. Often, they are pooled into one fund and all students who are qualified can interview. Then, each winning student receives an award.
You do not have to apply for each scholarship separately. This minimizes the amount of effort on your part and lets the organizations know that as many students as possible are being helped.
Service clubs and community organizations donate money because their mission is to serve the community. Businesses donate because they get positive public relations from it.
The amount usually ranges from $500 to $1000. These awards tend to be available for students with grade point averages above 3.0. Sometimes test scores and community service or leadership activities are taken into account.
Don’t overlook the possibility that some local organizations and businesses offer scholarships outside of the group fund. Your guidance counselor should be able to provide you with the details of applying for these awards as well.
If you are involved with a specific service club such as Circle K (for the Kiwanas) or Leos (for the Lions Club), find out if there are special scholarships in the sponsoring organization for students who volunteer in their communities. Often, a side benefit of membership in these organization is the availability of scholarship money.
Scholarships for high school students are available from community sources. Take advantage of these easy scholarships.
