Feeling the pinch of school expenses this semester? It’s no secret that education costs are rising, but it’s important to keep in mind there are many opportunities for free money, and not just in the form of the FAFSA (Federal application for student aid). Scholarships are always available, it’s a matter of both looking and applying for them.
If your concern is whether or not you qualify for scholarships, you need to remove this frame of mind! The UTSA General Scholarship application has hundreds (literally hundreds!) of scholarships with a variety of requirements-some are stringent, and some are lax in their requirements.
The point is you need to apply. The scholarship deadline this year is February 14th, 2014 (Valentine’s Day-that’s easy enough to remember). So treat yourself to the possibility of a sweet financial reward and complete the scholarship application today.
