Homeschool Scholarship Options for Students Attending College Soon

If you have a student wanting to go to college, then homeschool scholarships are always a good idea. If you've never had a student go to college, be sure to fill out your fafsa financial aid form on January 1st with your estimated income and then update the form as soon as you have your taxes done. 

Financial aid is on a first come first serve basis, so the earlier you get it in, the better chance you will have of getting aid. Make sure you triple check the form for errors though, because if you have to revise it after the financial aid award letters are sent, it is a problem to get that fixed.

While there are some homeschool friendly colleges, there are more and more colleges and foundations offering homeschool scholarships each year. I will list as many here as I can find. The more places you apply, the better chance you have of getting the most money in aid or scholarships.

As homeschooling continues to grow, I'm sure more and more schools and foundations will offer scholarships to homeschool students too.
