Stephanie’s Answer

I would recommending looking at school-specific scholarships as well as non-profit granted scholarships. For example, my alma mater (University of Southern California) offers merit-based scholarships if you apply by the early deadline (Dec 1). USC offers great STEM majors, I studied engineering and had a great experience.

I am a freshman in Fall and I was really uncertain of what I wanted to do until AFTER writing hundreds of essays for mostly STEM scholarships! Anyways, I saw the great opportunity and jumped on the STEM wagon. I met with the CEO of Going Merry, Charlie (Stanford Business Graduate) who has a passion to help students graduate without debt. Also got to meet some sponsors who were doctors, engineers, etc. If you are motivated you can start to earn $$$ too! Going Merry makes things easier, but you still need to put in the hard work! My advice is put in the effort now so you do not have to worry in the future! https://www.goingmerry.com/c/caitlinp-l0dy (free swag referral)The big take away is pick something you are passionate to study! Find a topic you would enjoy learning/writing about! Caitlin P.

Hi Sofia A. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

I offer two additional sources for learning where there are good scholarships in STEM fields. 1)Local high schools and their guidance counselors 2)Local newspapers that advertise scholarships that have been awarded to students. For this one, it would require paying attention to such announcements about a year or two before you start to apply so that you have a sense of what is being awarded, by what person or group and on average, how much the award is.

Hope you find this answer helpful and best of luck to you!
