Last Minute College Financing Guide
Are you just beginning to look for scholarships and college money? Do you already have an acceptance letter and a tuition bill looming? OR have you won a scholarship or award but still need more funds to pay all your college bills?  If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then you need last minute college funding and the latest edition of our guide can help! 
The Last Minute College Financing Guide includes more information about the following funding sources and more:
  • Community foundations – Community foundations often have later deadlines than some of the larger national scholarship organizations. In addition, the competition may not be as stiff because these foundations are designed to benefit only those individuals who are in a specific locale. Too, many community foundations have scholarships available to students who may have already started college. So even if deadlines have passed for you as a high school senior, you could still apply for one of their scholarships or grants as a college freshman.
  • Alumni associations – If your future college or university has an alumni association in your community, they may have funding to help students in the local area attend their alma mater.
 Last Minute College Financing Guide can also help current college students look for funding if they’ve reached the spring semester and need additional funding for the next term or academic year.
