Here are some scholarships that are due in two weeks. Both of them are simple and a great place to start if you are unsure of where to start.

Remember, you should be getting your letters of recommendation done so that you have them for scholarships that require them. Ask a teacher, counselor, coach, adviser or boss. Your family my love you but please do not ask them for a letter of recommendation.
