When do you start applying for scholarships?

When should I start looking for scholarships?

I am a high school junior and I am not sure when to start looking for scholarships. Should I start before I apply for college in my senior year or after? I tried looking it up, but it seems like the answer varies, so I am really confused.

Scholarship opportunities are available for students as young as four years old! Parents can begin searching for external scholarships for their young learners. These scholarships are not awarded by colleges or government agencies but by private organizations.

majorly depends on many things. I would say that you should first get accepted to a college before applying. Many Universities have scholarship programs which you can benefit from.

You are right; there are differing opinions on the best time to begin your scholarship search.

Save it for your senior year! In fact, juniors in high school are eligible for scholarships. Starting early allows you more time for document gathering, research, and creating compelling apps.


You will not pass up opportunities that you currently qualify for.

As a junior in high school, this is actually the ideal moment to begin your scholarship search! This is the reason why:

  1. Junior Scholarships: Do not wait to apply because there are scholarships available just for juniors.
  2. Prepare Early: By starting early, you will have more time to compile documentation, conduct research, and create compelling apps.
  3. Reduced Stress in Senior Year: College application and scholarship deadlines frequently coincide. A last-minute scramble can be avoided by starting early.

Now, put your attention on planning and research. Find scholarships that fit you and acquire necessary documents, such as transcripts. Then, in your senior year, apply closer to the deadlines.
