The Gallagher Student Health Careers Scholarship is open to all college juniors and seniors planning to pursue a career in a health-related field. I’m featuring this scholarship because it’s broad (open to just about any major that’s even somewhat related to health), and offers a large award ($5,000) to a group of students (6 students will win this scholarship).
Even though the school year is coming to a close, that doesn’t mean that scholarships stop giving away money. There are tons of scholarships with deadlines during the summer months. Because most students are off on summer vacation or generally not thinking about school during the summer, you may face less competition for scholarship contests offered during the “off-season.” To get you started, I found a few scholarships with upcoming deadlines in May.
Sometimes a scholarship is worth more than just the cash award. Some scholarship organizations provide their scholarship winners with resources such as internship opportunities, mentoring, and other awesome perks. When you win a scholarship like this, you are winning a supportive network of individuals who will work tirelessly to help you to succeed. For this Scholarship of the Month post I will be highlighting a scholarship organization that provides awesome resources for their winners: The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Scholarship!
The VIP Women in Technology Scholarship awards scholarships of up to $2,500 to women who are breaking barriers and pursuing technology careers. I love this scholarship because the application is simple and the requirements are relaxed enough that many of our female readers will be able to apply.
I chatted with the scholarship provider to help you learn even more about this opportunity. Good luck!
Every new year, I like to challenge myself to create a single goal and accomplish it before the end of the year. It’s a whole lot easier to focus on one goal than it is to try to tackle many simultaneously.
In 2006, I set out to apply for 100 scholarships. By the end of the year, I had applied for just over 120. As many of you are still pumped from the excitement of the new year, I’d like to challenge you to apply for at least one scholarship each month in 2014.
To help kick off this goal, I found these upcoming scholarship deadlines for February 2014.
