Scholarship Mom Tip #44: Freshmen Can Apply
A question that I get asked a lot is, “Can high school freshmen apply for college scholarships?” The answer is YES.
Online searching for “Scholarships for high school freshmen” yields several results, and I advise younger high school students to go ahead and apply. This will get them used to and comfortable with the scholarship process.
In the meantime, they should be working on getting good grades, taking challenging courses, and doing lots of community service.
When the majority of scholarships become available to them in their senior year, they will be in an excellent position to apply for as many as possible, and the more scholarships applied for, the better their chances are of winning!
