Senior scholarship searches - summertime is prime time!High school senior scholarship searches in summer can improve the odds when everyone else is taking a holiday.

For high school seniors, graduation is fast approaching or has already taken place. It’s tempting to put your senior scholarship searches and applications on the back shelf as summer nears and the sun beckons.
