Helpful Tips:

We suggest organizing your search into three categories:

  • Local and Community: Your high school counselor is a great resource for these!
  • Financial Aid Office: Check the website for each of your top college choices!
  • National Search Sites: Use the tool above or search the web to find a site you like. Spend time each week reviewing options and applying for scholarships. Also, never provide information you aren’t comfortable sharing like financials and especially your social security number.

Something for Everyone!

Not all scholarships go to students with the highest GPA. They may be based on your financial circumstances (need based), or on things like academic, athletic or artistic ability (merit based). Some scholarships are even associated with volunteering in your community, while others could be contest and sweepstakes entries.
