Scholarships are important among college students. Nowadays, college tuition can run up to more than $50,000 a year (that’s some serious dough). The price of tuition weighs on us when we’re applying to our dream schools. And it is even more stressful after graduation when we have 6 months to start paying back the loans. However, scholarships can lessen the burden of paying for college. Scholarships can make it easier for us to achieve our dreams. Here are three scholarships that you can apply for now to help jump start you to your dream career:
