10 Scholarships for Low-Income High Schoolers

Alright scholars, it's a new year and there's more money to be awarded. Graduating high school with over half a million dollars in scholarships, grants, and award offers was no easy job, but with the help of my village, it became possible. In high school, I was an ok student with a 3.7 GPA, top 10% of my class, 21 ACT test score, and an over-achieving amount of community service hours. Applying for college/scholarships I analyzed my strengths. Since I didn't have high test scores and my GPA wasn't a 4.0, I knew that I had to focus on my extra curricular activities and personal story. Below are a list of 10 scholarships that you should start applying for NOW! Also, I'll be making another post about how to apply for scholarships, so stay tuned. But for now, check out this article.
