If you are planning to take a year or more off between high school and college, check with your colleges of interest on their deferment policies and procedures.  Merit scholarships at many universities are for first year students.  These scholarships can often be deferred and held until you return for college but you must apply for school/FAFSA during your senior year of high school and then work with the school to complete their deferment procedures.
