February Deadline Scholarships for College

February – it’s the shortest month of the year.

That said, high school and college students may find it surprising there’s no shortage of February scholarships to apply for during this short and sweet window of time.

The search for scholarships can be maddening, as there’s a lot of outdated and inaccurate information out there.

Clicking on link after link only to be met with 404 pages or to find out submission deadlines have already passed gets old fast, right?

It’s annoying to say the least! And that’s why I put together this list of scholarships with February 2023 deadlines.

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.
