Don’t let someone else beach you to these scholarships ending in August!

With back-to-school shopping, packing for college, and last minute summer plans:

Finding scholarships to apply for is probably the last thing on your mind. And, as Sam Keen put it –

“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.”

A lot of other students are feeling the same way, so expect more competition if you wait until fall to start submitting applications.

Instead, get ahead of the crowd by applying to August scholarships!

The beginning of a new semester means a much busier schedule anyway. You’ll have class, test days, study sessions, social gatherings, and possibly work hours.

Take advantage of any extra free time you have left this summer before your schedule fills up. Otherwise – you may not have time to apply later!
