It is never to early to start planning for college!
If you don't apply for scholarships, you are just throwing away free money that you could spend on your educational expenses. Money awarded through scholarships doesn't ever have to be paid back and that money can save you hundreds – even thousands – of dollars over the course of your college career. This is money that could be used.
