Don't forget that you have until the last day of school to apply for the Bright Futures Scholarship. Don't miss this opportunity!! You can apply for it here and check out this cheat sheet to help with the 10 minute application. And remember these important rules:
1. You can use it within 2 years if you don't plan to go to college right away.
2. If you don't apply for it during your senior year you won't be able to receive it in the future.
3. It is only applied to public colleges and universities but you can work with private institutions to see if they will match the money you would receive.
4. You have to maintain a certain GPA in college to keep the scholarship.
