One of the most FAQ I get is, “Are there scholarships for juniors?” The answer of course is “YES!” There definitely aren’t as many scholarships available to juniors as there are for seniors, but they are out there. An example: Governor’s Honors Academy. GHA combines a 9-day conference experience with a 4-year scholarship to SUU. Double score! Juniors, if you are interested in attending SUU and if you are interested in having college paid for, this is a scholarship opportunity you can not pass up. More information:
