Finding and applying to college scholarships may sometimes seem like it’s a part-time job, but the rewards can be great if you receive a scholarship award. There’s really scholarships out there for everyone—from redheads to tall students to students seeking to study a particular college major. In this post, we’ll focus on nine scholarships for young women.
