Scholarships for High School Juniors

It's never too late to apply for scholarships, and although some students may wait until their senior year in high school to begin finding scholarships, junior year is a great time to get ahead of the game, as many big decisions are made in the eleventh grade - ones that will have a large impact on the next five years and beyond. Students spend time scoping out colleges, preparing for and taking the ACT and SAT, working with college athletic recruits, and so forth.

High school juniors are eligible to receive scholarships open to all high school students, but also ones that are specifically designated for juniors, such as The Hamilton Award. Others, like the Penguin Publishing Group's Signet Classics Student Scholarship Essay Contest, are open to upperclassmen. Therefore, with the plentiful scholarships, there's a large range of scholarships to be won - from $500 to $100,000, high school juniors can secure funding for their college education a year prior to graduation!

With the large availability and generosity of scholarships, there comes a certain amount of competition. High school juniors have the chance to compete for prestigious scholarships such as The Siemen's Competition scholarship or The Coolidge Scholarship. By the third year in high school, juniors will have had a chance to establish a solid academic and extracurricular profile to help boost their chances in successfully landing a scholarship. For the junior go-getters, here are some great scholarships:
