Financial aid from colleges, and the Federal
government are not the only sources of assistance available
to students. Millions of dollars are given away each year
to deserving students by private organizations. Finding these
scholarships and applying for them can be a frustrating, but
rewarding process. The best place to start looking for scholarships
is in your high school guidance office. Once you have a handle
on what is available locally, it's time to use the free scholarship
search services available on the internet.
Be persistent. Use more than one service. Don't
take the application process lightly. Be sure to meet deadlines
and to complete applications completely and accurately. Follow
application instructions to the letter. You can't be lazy
when it comes to asking for other people's money. The extra
effort is worth it. Often, simply the quality of an application
(complete/accurate/legible/grammatically correct) can make
the difference! We recommend you use all of the free sources
of scholarship information listed on our site. While there
are only so many scholarships, there are many ways to match
you to particular sources. All of the following meet our approval.
