Procrastinators can apply for late-deadline scholarships

Haven’t had time to submit your scholarship applications? Not to worry, there is still time to secure some last minute funding

Ideally you’d start applying for scholarships as soon as you decide that you are going to enroll with a traditional or online college course or degree. Sooner is better when it comes to securing funding for college, but some students will find themselves in a situation where they start college in a few months, but have no available funds to pay for it.

We’re not here to judge and tell you, you should have known better. We’re here to offer solutions. Getting funds for your college education online or offline in summer might not be the easiest task, but it’s feasible. Here are a few pointers you could follow.

Maybe you’ve dreamed to be able to pay for college all by yourself. You envisioned yourself as the recipient of a full-ride scholarships, but unfortunately the odds didn’t turn out in your favor. What do you do? Do you abandon your college education online or offline dreams? Not really. You keep pushing to achieve your goal.

Your first offline or online college course is just a few months away? Then it might be time to reach out to your family and ask them to help offset the cost of college by contributing to a tax-advantaged college savings account known as a 529 plan. Or they could help you pay for college necessities directly.

Another way to ensure you have money to pay for school tuition is to cut costs and cut costs drastically. Try living modestly for a few months by setting up a tight budget and looking for ways to decrease costs to save money.

Or you could fire up that browser on your computer once again and start looking for late-deadline scholarship contests. Like the one we’re going to be talking about below.

Enter the BigSun scholarship – which is open to student athletes, regardless of the sport they are engaged in. In order to apply, candidates will have to make use of their creativity and write a short essay which answers the following questions:

  • How did your participation in sports during your high school years influence you?
  • Has your participation influenced your career goals?
  • Has your participation influenced how you relate to your family?

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is June 19, 2018, so it’s perfect for students who are a step away from starting college, but for a reason or another haven’t managed to gather the necessary funds to pay for their school tuition. The BigSun scholarships awards only $500 in funding, but any free money is good money when you’re trying to pursue a noble goal like paying for your education.

Other late-deadline scholarship opportunities are also available; all you need to do is take some time to research the topic a little bit. These particular type of scholarships usually require you submit a short essay in order to apply, so it shouldn’t take you too long to send out a few scholarship applications in the months remaining before a new college year begins.
