Boca Raton, FL (PressExposure) February 24, 2011 -- With the number of tasks involved in applying for colleges in the fall, one thing that can fall through the cracks is attending to the college scholarship application dates. According to Dee J Cohen, licensed social worker , "College seniors are dealing with writing admission essays, checking out schools and adjusting to leaving their friends. It is easy to forget the deadlines for scholarships due to being so overwhelmed." Scholarships are a necessity for many to be able to attend school in the fall but can get eclipsed by the enormous number of tasks involved in preparing for college as well as dealing with senior year homework and sports. At her blog, Social Work Programs [http://www.socialworkprograms.org], many unknown scholarship awards are listed. For each school or each field of expertise, there are limitations and deadlines that have to be met by aspiring scholars. Below are some of the universities and special schools that have March Scholarship Deadlines.
The NASA College Scholarship Fund is an aid for students who are dependent of current or retired employees of NASA. The required average grade of any student who wishes to apply here is 2.5 on a scale of 4.0 and he should be interested in a college career that is related to engineering or science. The applicant must be a graduate of an accredited private, public, or parochial high school in the United States. The applicant must submit all the needed requirements on or before March 31. Only five scholarships will be given in the amount of $2,000 each.
Don't forget the Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholarship. The Jackie Robinson Foundation is giving minority students the chance to pursue a four-year course in college with the help of their $7,500 per year aid. This scholarship is given mostly to students who show leadership potential and have financial need. An applicant must be dedicated to rendering community service, plans to attend an accredited university in the United States, and be able to present evidences that he is really in need of a scholarship grant. The deadline of application for the scholarship is on March 15.
One more program that belongs to the deadline date is the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program. This scholarship program is funded by the GM Foundation and aims to help students who have financial difficulties and possess leadership skills in the community and in school. The scholarship will grant 100 scholars $25,000 per year and 1,000 scholars with $2,000 per year. This is open to first time college students who plan to take up courses involving math, business administration, finance, science, technology, marketing, and engineering. Slots will be awarded according to the student's career goals, academic achievement, work experience and more. The requirements of applicants should be submitted on or before March 31. Though there are many things to handle before college, paying attention to scholarship deadlines needs to be a high priority.
There are also a number of scholarships for students interested in health as well as social work scholarships for those that wish to work with others in their community. At SocialWorkPrograms.org a variety of scholarships are discussed including those for left handed students and awards for those seeking male nursing scholarships.
