Students have until the end of the school year to apply for the Bright Futures scholarship. There is nothing to lose when it only takes you 5 minutes to apply and that is it! Just make sure your school has all of your test scores and community service on file. Also, don't forget to keep your grades up!
If you are not planning on going to college right away STILL APPLY! You can use the award up to 2 years after graduating. Also, Bright Futures just added that high school graduates may now choose to defer their scholarship award upon completion of a full-time religious or service obligation lasting at least 18 months. Don't delay and apply today!
