Tricia’s Answer

Make sure to look for local scholarships and work with your guidence counseler. I never got any national scholarships but I got several smaller local scholarships which made a huge difference.


My local senior center gave me a scholarship, the national honor society and several other local foundations all helped me out!

Eric’s Answer

Stephen that's a great question! The answer is because there are so many. In my experience, the first thing to do is narrow down to 3 colleges/universities you wish to attend. Through the application process research the scholarships, as well as grants or working grants(on campus job/study programs) you can apply for. As well, being a Resident Advisor after freshman year can give you a big break. Then go to the city level and state level. There are a lot of local scholarships and foundations that most people do not know exist until they go and ask at your local municipal building. Then FAFSA's online application process can also help. I hope this helps. Do not be afraid to ask others for help as well

Eric recommends the following next steps:

Research college grants through university
City/state grants and finds
Government funds
