Yes they can! Recently, we've seen an uptick of students applying for scholarships and getting them. However, it's not too late to join in on the fun! With all of the many resources available online these days, it is so important to learn how to apply for a scholarship before your senior year. Your future could depend on it. Even if you are in high school now, make sure you start taking advantage of these opportunities sooner rather than later. If you are unsure about scholarship eligibility, here's a few things to consider. If you are over 50 years old, and haven't gotten your high school diploma then you've probably been in school for at least half of your life. In many cases, this means that you have more schooling than most adults. But don't be discouraged! There are plenty scholarships out there for people like you! More and more places are opening their doors to older students. I've seen a huge influx of scholarship opportunities now available to 50+ year olds. From students who want to go back and finish their high school diploma, to those who want to take online classes or get a degree in another field. Each one of those scholarships can add up! If you're a parent wanting to go back and get your degree for the sake of your family, there are plenty of scholarships out there for you too! You could use the money for tuition, books, supplies or even childcare.
