Who doesn’t want money for college? The tricky part can be finding it. Don’t despair: A scholarship might be sitting right under your very own nose.
According to Next Gen Personal Finance, 63% of all undergraduates receive at least one grant or scholarship to help with college expenses. Don’t be left out! Grants and scholarships are a great place to get free money for school that you never have to repay. Experts say that smaller scholarships offer much less competition than larger awards, so we recommend you start close to home. Members Trust is ready to help!
Your first stop should be to complete the 2022 Members Trust Scholarship application. Members Trust will award $1,000 scholarships to four deserving students in 2022. If you are a high school senior or a college student enrolled in an undergrad program, don’t miss the chance to earn money toward your continuing education expenses! Download the 2022 application and view the eligibility requirements. Return your completed scholarship application to Members Trust on or before Monday, May 31, 2022, to be eligible for consideration. Scholarships are time-sensitive so do not wait or you may miss your chance!
Lastly, before you take this next step into adulting, let us help you head out with a strong financial foundation.
