Conclusions on scholarships due in February

February – it’s the shortest month of the year. That said, students may find it surprising there’s no shortage of February scholarships to apply for during this short and sweet window of time.

I hope this list of open scholarship opportunities was helpful in your quest to secure free money to pay for your higher education. Keep in mind that even smaller awards are worthwhile because they usually have less competition and they all add up. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!
