Scholarship Mom Tip #53: Beware the Myths

myths

Don’t believe the scholarship myths.

One of the myths in the scholarship world is that most college scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors.

Take a look at most college websites, however, and see that there are tons of scholarships for current college students, especially for students who attend that particular institution.

Also, many scholarships are open to “high school seniors or current college students.” Don’t ever assume a student does not qualify for a scholarship before reading the fine print and application guidelines!
