Black Excel points out two Key things to remember:
1. Most groups provide scholarships on an annual basis, so don’t stress yourself over any one particular deadline.
2. Students are advised to target “good” scholarship sources…and apply every year.
The link to Black Excel’s 200+ scholarships list is: http://www.blackexcel.org/200-Scholarships.html.
One thing I noticed is that some of the links do not work when you click on them. this may be due to the fact that webpages are changed all the time. But it may still be worth while to spend a few minutes looking at the list. If clicking on the link doesn’t work, then try typing in the Web site address manually.
Also, Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does, and to anyone and everyone that comes to mind.
Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated money for scholarships to African Americans and other minorities, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest or awareness.
Parents, take the initiative to get your children involved. Money shouldn’t be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for it.
If you are a college student or getting ready to become one, you probably already know how useful additional money can be.
