Scholarship Success Option
Scholars App has continued to look for for new and upcoming scholarships that could be relevant to your students. For this month, we've created a PDF for you of scholarships that are available for students within your state and added it to a Google drive.
As always, we've vetted each of these scholarships to make sure they are not frauds or scams. We've also continued to work on getting more updates on other scholarships that will be returning later this year.
