Scholarship Search Tips

Scholarships (money for college that does not have to be repaid) are a form of aid that helps students pay for their education. You may have to do some deep digging to get to the bottom of the scholarship pot. Take a look at the requirements for each scholarship; you must also remember to check the application deadlines (these occur at different times during the calendar year). Scholarships are hard to gain, and you should not apply if you are not willing to put in the necessary work. You must be willing and able to finish what you start. If you would not be willing to write an essay, take a test, or complete a project or interview to secure a scholarship, you should not apply in the first place.
