So, you’re a high school student and you’re in the process of finding scholarships to help pay for school your freshman year of college and beyond. Good job! This is the best time to search for scholarships, since scholarships for high school students are by far the most common kind. Many scholarship providers give big awards to students early on in their academic careers, possibly even funding your education at your dream school. With federal financial aid limits such as smaller student loans and later disbursement dates placed on aid for college freshmen, all that scholarship money can really help. Many of these scholarships will be easier to get if you begin preparing early in high school, and some competitions allow you to enter before your senior year of high school, making the final search for scholarship opportunities that much easier for students who have planned ahead.

Scholarships for high school students are probably the most common category of scholarships by grade level. High school students are planning on starting college for the first time and likely don’t have other sources of funding lined up. Scholarships for high school students, therefore, are creating an investment in a student right at the beginning of his or her academic career and are providing funding that is likely desperately sought.

And you are a planner, aren’t you? You’ve likely done our free scholarship search already and now you’re even reading more about scholarships for high school students in our Resources section. Your ability to do research like this is why you plan on attending college, isn’t it? Well, your effort is going to pay off big time, as what you’re about to read is a short list of really great scholarships for high school students hand-selected by the experts here at Scholarships.com from our extensive database of college scholarships and grants. Here are separate pages for junior and senior scholarships but click the links below to find out more and start applying!
