Scholarships Due in August

There are a lot of mixed feelings with August. It’s still the Summer, and it is still very hot out, but school will be starting soon. If you enjoy going to school, then that is awesome, but, for many people, going to school is not so enjoyable. This could be for a multitude of reasons, one of which could possibly be that many people don’t know how they are going to be paying for school. They might have to take out loans, which could be very expensive.

However, we are hoping that we can help by providing you with a list of scholarships that have deadlines in August! Keep checking back on this list for updates!
