Scholarships are an incredibly important part of being able to afford your college journey. Unlike student loans, you don’t need to pay scholarship money back, so you should apply to as many as possible! Each month, CollegeXpress highlights upcoming awards and contests as part of “Scholarship Saturday” to help make your search a little easier. Check out the featured awards below, and be sure to apply if you’re eligible. Good luck!
$2,000 | Easy Scholarship: Share a Calming Self-Care Checklist with a Friend to Keep Them Safe on the Road
Deadline: August 19
Info: Applicant must be between the ages of 13 and 25. You could win an easy $2,000 scholarship by sharing a mental health and road safety checklist to help a friend practice self-care and stay safe on the road. Motor vehicle crashes continue to be one of the leading causes of death among young people and according to multiple studies, adolescents experiencing psychological distress report higher levels of risky driving. Print our checklist of calming self-care practices (or make your own!) Then share a photo (if sharing in-person) or screenshot (if sharing digitally) of you sharing the checklist with a friend and encourage them to keep it in their vehicle or wallet and use the steps to calm their mental and emotional state before getting on the road. Include a text keyword for them to use to access our mental health and road safety guide. You'll protect your friends *and* be entered for a chance to win a $2,000 scholarship. Win-win!
