Scholarship Mom Tip #18: Deadlines Change from Year to Year

  Don’t assume deadlines will stay the same every year or you may miss out on valuable scholarship money!   In all my years of scholarship searching and research, I have noticed something interesting about published deadlines.  In both scholarship search websites and big scholarship listing books, the deadline that is published is not always the true deadline.  If the organization that offers the scholarship money did not contact the scholarship listing source, it seems the previous year’s deadline is assumed to be the same for the new year.  What this means for scholarship searchers is to go an extra step when making a list of scholarships to apply for and make a quick visit to the website of the scholarship provider to verify the deadline for the current year.  Worth Repeating: Don’t assume deadlines will stay the same every year or you may miss out on valuable scholarship money!
