Did you know that some people get paid to learn, and the payment is not coming in the form of student loans? They are getting free and clear money because they started early, and they understand that college scholarships are not limited to graduating seniors or those students with super memories and extremely high test scores. Senior Year of high school is usually when students start applying for scholarships, but they may not be taking advantage of all of the scholarship income that they can generate by waiting until their last year of high school. In fact, there are programs that are open to middle school and high school students, between the ages of 13 and 17, who have set their sights on college and are beginning to build their education fund.
This activity is designed mainly for high school students since it requires a student to know their GPA, but it can be adapted to high achieving middle school students who know how to calculate their GPA. It will require that the student sign up for a top website for scholarships so that they can learn how to start researching scholarships and begin applying for them.
