Scholarships are seasonal, widely available, competitive, and another source of college funding. The scholarship season begins in January with the release of federal financial aid forms (FAFSA) and scholarship applications for the next academic year (Fall through Summer). The majority of scholarships are out in January and due March 1st or earlier, although you will find scholarships with deadlines throughout the year. Lately, more scholarships are being made available in November or December for the next academic year.
The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) has been researching and compiling a list of available scholarships that have been grouped by academic year and by deadlines. Need help? Please, contact usand we would be glad to assist you individually or in workshops. Also see scholarship tips for additional information.
