You know what else makes this month awesome? There is certainly no shortage of April scholarships to apply for throughout the month.

Similar to March, there's an abundance of scholarships that expire on April 1st. I know what you're thinking...is this some sort of April fool's joke? Well, I am here to tell you that this is no joke folks - there are more than a few April scholarships expiring on the first day of this month!
