25 College πŸŽ“ Scholarships πŸ’° That Are a Godsend to Girls in Need πŸ™πŸΌ ...


I'm glad I'm past college age.

When I went to university in the UK it was essentially free - we lived off grants that we didn't have to pay back!

US (and now UK) students not only have to go through the anguish of hoping to get into a preferred school but also have the stress of how to pay for it.2

There are however, more scholarships out there than you may realize and so many go unclaimed.

And they are not all about grades.

There are scholarships with some pretty way out qualifying criteria if you look.

Here are some - mostly general ones.

1. For Essay Writers

A monthly scholarship award of $500 available to high school students and college students with a GPA of 2.5 or higher.

Entry is via a short essay due on the last day of the month.

2. For Non-Essay Writers

A free-to-enter monthly draw for $2,000 open to any student planning to enroll in college within 12 months.

3. For Charity Campaigners

Volunteer your time for any of DoSomething.org’s campaigns and you could win $10,000.

Entry is via submission of pictures of your campaign work.

There is also a quarterly draw for a seasonal scholarship for $10,000.

4. For Coffee Lovers

There's a requirement to write an essay and so much the better if you can work into it your love of coffee.

Grant ($500) is awarded once in spring and once in fall.

5. For GPA 3.0 Students

If you're a college sophomore or junior with a 3.0 GPA, you can apply to GEICO for a scholarship award of $2,500.

Entry is by a resume, letter of recommendation, unofficial transcript and short essay.

Deadline February 15.

6. For Girls Who Want to Be Engineers

SWE offers a host of scholarships to female undergraduates and graduate students in engineering, engineering technology or computer science in the U.S.

or Mexico.
