Specific College Scholarship Applications Due In April
College seniors and transfer students often cannot attend college unless a scholarship is awarded. According to Dee Cohen, licensed social worker and blog owner at SocialWorkPrograms.org, “Students I see at the clinic where I work are overwhelmed by the college application process and often neglect the scholarship deadline dates due to all the tasks involved in the admission process.” Schools have different dates for admission applications and various foundations have specific deadlines for their scholarship forms. Notes and a good spreadsheet with a column for deadline dates can make this process easier.
Because loans require payment after graduation, scholarships are ideal for students who may need to struggle with finding work when school is completed. There are scholarship programs awarded by corporations, local communities, special foundations and the government. It is important to find out the grade point average they require as well as additional requirements so the best fit is found. Many students are unsure of a major and the health field including social work as well as nursing are positions that are always sorely needed.
April college scholarship deadlines are right around the corner. The Morgan Stanley scholarship program is for American students who wish to study in a Japanese university. It grants two scholarships worth $7,500 each. Juniors and senior students who are interested in taking up economics and international finance are the ones eligible for this scholarship. The applications for this scholarship are collected and screened by the US-Japan Bridging Foundation and the Association of Teachers of Japanese. The application deadline is on the 8th of April. An applicant has to submit an application form to the Bridging Project Clearinghouse in the University of Colorado.
For those with an interest in health, the Healthy Lifestyles Scholarship should be considered if they are under twenty five, will be an incoming freshman or are in their first year of college now. There will be two different essays required. One covers the question of why a healthy lifestyle is important in school. The other asks one to describe their career plans, goals and personal ambitions. The award is five thousand dollars.
Another program with an April Scholarship Deadline is the Ronald C. Harrell Scholarship for engineering students. This is founded in 1918 by the North Carolina Society of Engineers. It grants North Carolina lucky students two thousand dollars each. The deadline for submission of application is on the 23rd of April.
Other scholarships due in April include the Seabee Memorial Scholarship for military programs on April 15th, Oregon Medical Education Foundation Scholarship due by April 1st and the National Association of Black Journalists Scholarships which has a deadline of April 4th 2011.
There are other scholarship programs that are available and some that are listed at Ms Cohen’s blog including left handed scholarships as well as single mother scholarships. There are also minority women scholarships and ones for those with specific illnesses including epilepsy. Ms. Cohen suggests students and their parents think about their family history,organizations that they belong to as well as local community resources in order to become more aware of hidden scholarship funds.
