Scholarships aren’t taken advantage of

The economy is getting tough, especially when it comes to college, but if you are knowledgeable about scholarships offered to students and take the time to look for them it could make your time at school during these economic times a little easier.

There are so many things that students are doing with their lives: going to school, going to work, hanging out with friends, homework, other errands.

Instead students should take the time to look into scholarship opportunities instead of complaining about the help and money not being there for them or having enough money, they can do so by going to the Cerritos College Foundation website.

If you feel as if you don’t have the time to fill out an application for a scholarship, you’re wrong.

It’s easy. Everyone is on the internet nowadays as it is and you can get most of the information needed on scholarships right from the Cerritos College Foundation website.

Of course with anything there is a process for applying for a scholarship, you shouldn’t let this discourage you.

We are at a time in life when most things are hard to get, you shouldn’t have a second thought to look into scholarships that are available to eligible students.

Most students are not even aware that they can become eligible for a scholarship.

You need to first fill out the General Scholarship Application available at the Cerritos College Foundation website.

Then a review will be conducted and you will get to see what scholarships you’re eligible for.

Now, of course this may take some time but it’s worth it.

It’s a little extra money to help toward paying for books, classes and other things you see the need to pay for.

With so many scholarships available it shows Cerritos College wants us to succeed.

There is no reason why the Cerritos College Foundation wouldn’t want students to get scholarships.

Just by typing “scholarships” into the search bar on the Cerritos College website, you can find pages and pages of scholarship information

And by going to the foundation website you can find multiple scholarships including a General Scholarship, an Automotive Technology Scholarship, an Edison Green Jobs Technology Scholarship and an Osher Scholarship.

But that’s not it, there are so many more scholarships.

On a flyer put out by the Cerritos College Foundation there are 12 categories for students to look into to see if they apply.

It isn’t just for a certain major or a certain program. It’s both and more.

You can be a business major or health occupations major.

You can be involved in community service or even be a first time Cerritos College student.

If you keep looking you can find a scholarship that works for you.

It’s all about just taking the time and looking online at the website or you can even add the Cerritos College Foundation on Facebook in order to stay updated on deadlines and tips on applications.

The deadline for the General Scholarship Application is Sept. 21.

Even though that is close students should still be cautious about scholarships and know it’s never too late to receive help.

And it never hurts to try either just take the time and don’t be afraid to just do it.
