Searching for scholarships can be maddening. There’s a lot of outdated and inaccurate information out there!

I know how annoying it is to be met with a 404 page or to find out the submission deadline has already passed.

That’s why I put together this list of scholarships with deadlines in February 2021.

My goal is to help busy students take some of the headache out of applying for college scholarships. So you can utilize your limited time for more important things – like filling out applications.
