Scholarships for Summer

Although the majority of scholarship deadlines are in autumn and spring (November is National Scholarship Month), do not overlook potential summer scholarships for the upcoming school year. Many awards ask for material submission during the slow, lazy months of summer. A slower application season may even work to your advantage. With fewer applicants going for summer scholarships, you may be up against a much smaller pool of qualifiers than you would once college classes are back in session. So take advantage of your time off, bring in those application materials, and apply for a few scholarships this summer. You may find yourself in more comfortable financial shape come fall.

Finding Summer Scholarships

The easiest way to find scholarships offered in the summer, or any season, is to conduct a free scholarship search. Once that is done, you will get a list of awards filtered by the student-specific criteria. With constant scholarship updates, we provide you with the most accurate, recent scholarships. Summer awards may also have quick turnaround offered to their winners, so if you land a summer scholarship early on in the season, you could be looking at your award check by August. The only way you’ll find summer scholarships is if you put in the time to research and look for them, so make sure you take advantage this summer season money for college.

Paying for Summer Programs

If you are taking summer classes, you may prioritize financial aid over basking in the sun. You will also have an additional semester of college costs , so you will need to budget to cover those expenses. Many students take summer courses, whether they are on track to graduate early or their courses fall outside of the traditional fall and spring semesters. Make sure the financial aid you are already receiving will cover the costs of a summer semester; you may already have enough allocated, especially if your college costs are based on how many credit hours you’re taking, or if your summer classes are replacing courses you would normally take in the fall or spring. If you find that you are still coming up short, it may be that you need to find other ways to cover those summer expenses. In that case, we encourage you to begin searching for scholarships well before the summer semester, as it often takes scholarship administrators several months to announce their award winners and distribute scholarship funds.

If you are pursuing a summer abroad program, there are awards out there specifically for students wishing to study abroad. Typically, you will be able to use scholarship-based money to cover study abroad expenses, especially if the program is run by your school or another accredited college. Similarly, if you are pursuing a non-paid summer internship, you may need to cover your own expenses. If the internship collaborates with your college or university, contact them about potential financial aid options. You will probably need to cover your own expenses if the internship is run through external organizations, so save up and apply for as many scholarships as you can, prior to that summer experience.
