Forty Scholarships that you should apply for in January


For many students, attending college can be prohibitively expensive. This is particularly the case, if the college one wishes to attend is out-of-state. While many colleges charge out-of-state students more, there are often options to help lower the cost, including scholarships.

Many colleges provide both need-based aid and merit scholarships that can help significantly reduce the cost of attending college at your preferred college. Many colleges offer tuition discounts as well. According to a study by the National Association of College and University Business Officers, the average tuition and fees discount for the 2015-2016 academic year was 48.6 percent. 

Thankfully, there are additional financial aid programs to help reduce the costs, including grants, scholarships, work-study and fellowships (for post-graduate study). Finding these opportunities, however, can be time-consuming and requires lots of advance preparation and organization.




To save time and give you a head-start on finding the best scholarship opportunities, College Mouse will be proving monthly updates on upcoming scholarship deadlines.

January is particularly a great time to be researching and applying for scholarships. Below are a number scholarships with upcoming deadlines in January.
