College Scholarship Tip: Discuss finances early in senior year
This college scholarship tip will help students understand the importance of applying for as many scholarships as they possibly can.
Parents can bring their students down to earth a bit by having an honest and open discussion about how much it will cost for them to attend the school of their dreams and the amount the family has saved or can realistically contribute to their college costs.
In doing this, students will usually see the importance of applying for college scholarships right away, as there are tons of scholarships available for high school seniors right from the beginning of the school year until they graduate in the spring.
(And actually, all through the summer months after they have graduated, not to mention the TON of scholarships open to college students once they get there.)
Not as many students apply for early-deadline scholarships, and less competition means greater chances of winning scholarship money!
More info on early-deadline scholarships is found here.
