Around the Corner from College $1,000 Scholarship

I was in high school not too long ago, and I remember the feelings of being stressed about preparing for college all too well. That's why I created this scholarship, to help get you started with identifying what YOU need to do to get prepared for everything that the college process entails.

Before you get started with the application, here's a shortlist of everything you need to know:

"It feels amazing to have won this scholarship, and I feel incredibly honored. For the last two years, I have worked extremely hard at my jobs to save enough money for college tuition. Now that I've applied for scholarships, and have won this one, I know that I have some money other than my own to put towards my academics. I cannot wait to apply this scholarship to the college of my choice, which has yet to be determined, and pursue a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. This scholarship is just one step further to me shaping the future. It means a lot to me, and for that I thank Access Scholarships!"
