May College Scholarships to Apply for in 2019
Tons of May scholarships to apply for!
May is almost upon us and that means it’s time to start looking for scholarships with May deadlines.
Finding money to pay for college requires dedicating a good chunk of your time to just sorting through scholarships and grants. Many of those which are listed on aggregate websites that are no longer available or the due date is off.
To say the least, it’s a frustrating part of hunting for scholarships!
Because I know your time and efforts are better spent on actually working on the applications, I put together this list of May scholarships.
I checked each and every link to make sure that the scholarships are still available and that the deadlines are accurate for 2019.
Hopefully, this helps save some of your precious time!
Included are scholarships for women, minorities, undergraduate & graduate studies, and high school students. Plus, there are college funds that take applications from any and all types of students.
Available Scholarships in May 2019
You’ll notice on this list of May scholarships that some are marked with letters and colors. This is to indicate that the respective contests have specific eligibility requirements.
The purpose of this is to help you be able to more quickly sort through which ones you can apply for.
*HS = High School/entering 1st year of post-secondary education applicants only
*UG = can be used for Undergraduate study only
*G = can be used for Graduate study only
*W = Women applicants only
*M = Minority applicants only
*State abbreviations included in brackets indicate a scholarship is only available to certain residents or those who are attending college in the specified state.
