High-Value College Scholarships Due This Month

February–it’s shortest month of the year.

That said, high school and college students may find it surprising that there’s no shortage of February scholarships to apply for.

The search for scholarships can be maddening as there’s a lot of outdated and inaccurate information out there.

Clicking on link after link only to be met with 404 pages or to find out the submission deadline has already passed gets old fast, right?

It’s annoying to say the least! And that’s why I put together this list of scholarships due in February 2021.

My goal is to help busy students take some of the headache out of applying for college scholarships. So you can utilize your limited time for more important things – like filling out applications.
