Paying for College

Nine College Scholarships Students Can Apply to this April

Whether your financial aid package for next year came up a little short or you're planning out your budget for college in the future, there's never a bad time to research scholarships and apply for more money for school. There are scholarships available for students starting as early as middle school all the way up through graduate school.
