The month of October offers a few sizable scholarships. All relatively easy scholarships for both high school and college students. Simply browse through the list and pick and choose which ones are best for you! If you’re in college and could squeeze a few of these programs in between classes, it’ll definitely be worth it (tuition is high nowadays if you hadn’t noticed). Of course, these are not all the programs for this month, this is only to provide some direction if unsure where to start. Just keep chugging along knocking each program you’re eligible for out and who knows, you might earn some cash. Also, be sure to check the Easy Scholarships List page for scholarships available year-round. Good Luck!
