February is the second month of the year and the shortest month at that! If you are a high school senior, your admissions application process is complete and you are now waiting for final admissions decisions. Juniors are just getting their college admissions process started while sophomores and freshmen are continuing to keep up the good work inside and outside of the classroom. Whether you are a high school freshman or senior who is waiting for your admissions decisions, there are still tons of scholarships that are ripe for the winning!
Don’t let the doldrums of winter put the brakes on your scholarship search! Every dollar in scholarships that you win means a dollar less that you will have to pay for college (or a dollar less that you are in debt after graduation). These February scholarships are a great place to start, so start applying!

Tips for students in February
By the time February rolls around, you’re most likely in the swing of your second half of the year. While your first priority should always be to stay on top of your schoolwork, February is also a great time to start considering what you’ll do over the summer.
Whether it’s a summer program, an internship, or a job, the earlier you start looking, the better off you’ll be! If you are going to apply to something that requires a letter of recommendation, it’s a good idea to ask for those early as well to give your teachers as much time as possible to write it.
