100 Scholarships List and Scholarship Reminder List


100 Awesome Scholarships that will Help You Pay for College—this list of scholarships was forwarded to me by the Languages, Literature and Philosophy professor, Dr. Jeff Thompson.

In looking over this list, you want to make note of future scholarships or programs that may apply to you if they are closed.

I would suggest opening a Microsoft Word document or other program such as Wordpad and entitle it your name and scholarships.

Scholarship 33 of this list is Life Lessons Scholarship Program, noting from the website, “Applicants must submit an essay or short video about the effect of losing a parent during childhood. The grand prize is $15,000; apply by March 3.”

Here is the link: http://www.lifehappens.org/life-lessons-scholarship-program/

In reading the official rules, you learn that the contest opened on Feb 2, 2015, and closed on Mar 3, 2015.

Further, you learn the following: “The Life Lessons Scholarship Program is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, who are between 17 and 24 years of age, have experienced the death of a parent or legal guardian, and are currently enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a college, university or trade school within the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico.”

If you find you cannot qualify for this scholarship, you can move on.

However, if you do qualify, type January, letting yourself know that you should check on this scholarship in January.

Type 1, Type “Life Lessons Scholarship,” cut and paste the link to the scholarship, and the criteria.

I would then type in March, copying the information above, and then type Due early March to add to the information.

Keep a running tab of scholarships you can apply for and when they are due. Your list should grow.

Periodically, send a copy of this to your email as an attachment, so that you have that list in case you ever lose it.

Now, you have a growing scholarship list, noting dates and times you should look them over. The reason you check in January is because the scholarship program dates may change, and you can find that out if you check early enough.
