Up until now, many of the scholarship applications have had one common thing--ESSAYS!

Guess what?  Here is a link to some February "Do Something" Scholarships that focus on helping others...and many of them just require that you DO SOMETHING, such as design a card. Look through the list and give some of them a shot!  There's lots more scholarship money out there.  Get busy and earn some $$$ for college.
