Scholarship Mom Tip #80: High School Freshmen Can Apply For Scholarships

Yes, there are scholarships for which high school freshmen can apply.Is the freshman year in high school too early to apply for scholarships? No!

A question I get asked frequently is: Can high school freshmen apply for scholarships? The answer is, YES!

Do an online search for “scholarships for high school freshman” and several will be found.

Applying for scholarships early will get students used to and comfortable with the scholarship applying process.

Younger students should also concentrate on getting good grades, taking challenging courses, and doing lots of community service. This impresses scholarship judges and paves the way for more scholarship options when senior year comes — and many more scholarship opportunities are available.
