Earning a college degree can be a rewarding and life changing accomplishment. It also comes with a large price tag. The government has offered a few different options for student loan forgiveness or tips for paying off those loans. However, that doesn't mean cutting costs in any way possible isn't an option.

As a college student myself, I am always looking for possible scholarship opportunities to help cut back on the student loan debt that seems to keep piling up. One Facebook page that I made sure to follow when I went back to school was the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Aid (LOFSA).

The page has regular updates that offer students advice and help when it comes to the struggles of going to and paying for a college education.

LOFSA just recently posted about all of the scholarships that are available to students for the month of September, and they are worth taking a look at.

These are the 10 scholarships offered in September LOFSA wants you to know about:

All of these scholarships are great opportunities and offer great rewards. They are for students in many different concentrations.

If you are looking to possible apply for any one of them, make sure that you keep in mind the deadlines for each. Just about all of them are due around the end of the month of September.
