ATTENTION STUDENTS: Here’s a list of scholarships you can apply for this upcoming school year

School can be costly, and not everyone has the means to afford it. That’s why earning a scholarship can make education more accessible to students and help cover expenses such as tuition fees, books, transportation, and living expenses. This financial aid not only alleviates the financial burden of pursuing education but also serves as a driving force for personal and career growth.

Below is a list of scholarships that students can apply for to support their financial needs:
