New Year, New Scholarships; January 2023 Edition
Kevin Ladd

In just a few days, 2022 will be behind us and a new year begins. Will this be your year? One very productive way to spend the next several days of winter break would be to get a jump on upcoming scholarships and January 2023 has a LOT from which you may choose.

Naturally, you want to stay organized and employ a winning strategy; apply for the scholarships that best suit you, offer substantial dollar amounts and also have a manageable deadline. Sort by date and make sure you don’t miss out on any of your best-fit opportunities for free money!

One thing you may wish to consider is to sort through and find the ones you can knock out quickly and easily and just get those out of the way. From there, just make sure you keep track of the ones you have already applied for, those you are going to apply for and make a note of deadlines and how each one will be announcing the winner(s) and when.
