Scholarships are a great way to earn the money you need to acquire a higher education. With that being said, the end of the school year is approaching fairly quickly, leaving students in need to organize themselves, find out when the due dates for scholarships are, and complete them in a timely manner. Remember that scholarship sites will have a high influx of viewers towards the end of their scholarships – which may leave it impossible for you to complete them, if there is enough traffic. To ensure that doesn’t happen and that your scholarship is accepted, use this list of scholarship closings that I have compiled for you.
Best Buy Scholarship Program
The 2013 Best Buy Scholarship Program, as found here, gives college-bound students access to technologies that would otherwise not be given to them. According to the link, one thousand one hundred students will receive one thousand dollars to spend on computers, printers, and the like – all a courtesy of the Best Buy franchise.
The program is closing on February 15th, so if you plan to apply, be sure to do so quickly!
The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition
For those interested in fashion design or fashion merchandising, this competition will allow for half of an AI tuition paid for, as well as a VIP trip to New York City. For fashion design, the contest requires three sketches of an evening wear garment. For fashion merchandising, predict the next fashion trend and create a vision board to demonstrate how you think it will infiltrate the world of fashion.
This program closes on February 14th. Although the deadline is in two days, those who are interested may already have sketches or ideas to use in this competition. Apply quickly at this link!

The AFA Teens for Alzheimer’s Awareness College Scholarship

First prize – $5,000
First runner up – $500
Second runner up – $250
The deadline for this scholarship is February 15th, 2013.
As you can see, most of these scholarships end around the middle of the month. I have seen this to be a trend for most scholarships. With that being said, my next scholarship closing post – Scholarships Closing March 2013 – will be posted towards the beginning of the month to give readers more time to complete these scholarships.
