How To Find Scholarships
There are many resources out there that provide help in finding scholarships. Many of these are free, so don’t pay anyone or any website money to help you in this process. Below are a number of links to places on the internet that can help you in the process of finding the money you need to make your college dreams come true!
First. . . .
You need to think of finding scholarships as a part-time job. It takes time, but if you find and receive a $500 scholarship by working at it for 10 hours -- Hey! You just earned $50/hour. Not bad.
Second. . .
You need to be organized and make sure you keep on top of deadlines for applications. You can create a spreadsheet with info about all scholarships you are interested in applying for. For example, include name of scholarship, internet link/contact info, amount of scholarship, requirements, when the deadline for application is, and when you will hear back.
Third. . .
Be patient and persistent.
Last of all -- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You can ask your counselor or Ms. Burson, our College Access Advisor. Once you have been accepted to an institution, their scholarship office is your best resource. You will find links to in-state college scholarships sites on this website.
