Despite tuition costs falling for the first time in decades, securing financial aid is a big issue for many families. Scholarships are a great way to help pay for school. However it can be hard to figure out what scholarships are available to you.

Not to mention, how and when to apply for them.

Scholarship deadlines vary year to year, and most only accept applications for a limited window of time. It’s important to apply early to avoid any last-minute mishaps (like your computer crashing unexpectedly) that could cause you to miss out.

So if you’re a high school student graduating this year, it’s prudent to start thinking about where you want to go and how you’ll pay for it.
