  • THINGS TO REMEMBER 


    Scholarships are a great way to get extra money to help pay for college expenses.  Keep these things in mind to help you in the process: 

    • Many scholarships go unclaimed due to lack of applicants
    • Take advantage of this by applying for scholarships
    • The schools you are applying to may have automatic scholarships based on your GPA, class rank, and/or GPA
    • Go to college websites to see if you qualify
    • Use independent search sites (located on this site) for additional scholarships 
    • Remember this process will require a bit of work
    • Get busy and start applying!

    Other locations to consider when searching for scholarships

    • Your church
    • Parents' place(s) of business
    • Your job!
