Applications and DeadlinesEligibility criteria and application deadlines vary widely; be sure to leave yourself enough time to research and apply for appropriate awards. It is best to begin your search a year prior to your enrollment. Deadlines are often between October 1 and December 31 for awards intended for the following academic year (beginning the next fall semester). These databases will help you start your search:
