As everyone knows it’s nearing holiday season, but with good tidings comes scholarship deadlines. As a senior myself I feel it is both my duty and opportunity to share some of the scholarships that have been snowed down on me from the heavens:

Most of the scholarships don’t take a long time to fill out, however some are essays that you have to write. Lots of these scholarships are funny like: “what ice cream flavor would you be?”
- https://www.raise.me/micro-scholarships (Multiple)
On this website it allows you to enter all of your courses, ACT scores, and lots of other information about your school career that allows to “make” college money. I wouldn’t recommend this unless one of the schools that you want to go to is on this site.

This link look ridiculous and horrendous, however it is neither of those things. This is a scholastic scholarship with a handwritten essay about someone who helps someone outside of the classroom. It is worth $15,000.
This scholarship is for African American students. I do not know how much you could receive, but I do know that is from a reliable source.
For your safety I have made sure that all websites/scholarships listed are secure. If you look in the left hand corner of your URL it will say “Secure” if the website is valid. Some scholarships may not have that if it takes you to a different site, so please be cautious.
