Being a high school junior or senior can bring numerous challenges. Attempting to balance academics, extracurricular activities, a social life, and maybe even a part time job can be overwhelming. It is no wonder that so many young students will put the idea of scholarships to rest, once they realize how time-consuming it can be to apply. Although the process may seem daunting, there are many reasons why it is worth the effort to apply.
Forever A Loan
College is expensive, and unless you are lucky enough to receive a full ride scholarship you will most likely borrow loans to pay for your schooling. Paying for these loans is a heavy burden for a college student, whether they be paid while attending college or in the years following graduation. Paying off the debt of student loans completely can take several years, especially if the loans are not used wisely. Fortunately, there is a large amount of scholarships available for students, and the financial woes of college can be lessened by these awards. Even applying for scholarships that do not yield high amounts of money will be beneficial when it comes to paying for tuition, books, and other expenses. The most important thing to remember is that the amount of money that you earn from scholarships is FREE MONEY! You do not need to repay it, and your hard work is what earned you the reward.
What Does It Take To Win?
Though you may not feel that you are capable of winning the scholarships with high competition and award money, you may find that there are many scholarships that you can acquire. Put away the idea that only gifted athletes and super geniuses are the ones who win scholarships. Remember, persistence is key when taking on the varying challenges that each scholarship may require, and the effort you put into each application will give you a greater chance of winning.
