Finding scholarships can be a tough and frustrating process! Here are a few tips to help you out along the way.
- Start Local: While local scholarships are not always worth as much as national scholarships, they are sometimes easier to get. It is a good idea to look at your parent or guardian’s place of employment as there are sometimes scholarships offered through several organizations. Ask your grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends about clubs/organizations they belong to. They may have scholarships you can apply for!
- College Financial Aid Pages: Many colleges offer scholarships specifically for students attending their school. Go to the “Financial Aid” tab of any college and you will generally find a list of scholarships. Many colleges are going to one application common scholarship application. By filling out one application, you will automatically qualify for everything the school has to offer! Note: MANY people forget to complete these applications, don’t miss out on this opportunity!
- National Searches: There are many national sites like fastweb.com or scholarships.com. There is nothing wrong with filling out applications. Just remember that you are competing with everyone in the whole nation. Start local first and complete these applications if you have extra time!
