Check out these websites and see if they help you find what you are looking for. There are all kinds of different scholarships based on quite a few different spectrums. Hope these at least provide you with a great start.

Hi Emily,

In this day and age, with the cost of school, I would not try to limit your focus. Of course you do need to consider how much money you will actually need for school. I would try to get a scholarship that covers the entire 2-year or 4-year timeframe that you want to attend school. I would also encourage having enough money to pay for books, other incidentals, as well as maybe the ability to live on campus.

I would offer that you should consider looking for a variety of scholarships. I think that there are some that are offered to protected classes (like people of color or women) and there are scholarships for specific skills. I had a family member who won a scholarship for writing a story that was chosen to win. I offer this since some people focus only on scholarships related to academic achievement. I work for an employer who has employee groups (for example, HACEMOS at AT&T) offer scholarships to specific groups of young people.

You should not just apply for scholarships before your freshman year, you should apply every year to make sure that you have the money that you need to meet all of your academic dreams.
