  1. I am a junior in high school and have actively been looking at scholarships and grants. Are there any that I can register for now? Or should I wait until my senior year of high school or freshmen year of college?

    • Hi Seth! You should definitely start looking for scholarships now! It is never too early. I am still working on it, but I will soon be launching a scholarship directory on my website. There are many scholarships out there only open to high school seniors and current college students, so it is sometimes hard to find the scholarships for the younger students. But, they are there and soon you will be able to find scholarships open to students like yourself. I am hoping it will be launch by the end of the month.
