First off, please make sure to be careful when applying for scholarships and grants. There are a lot of great scholarships out there but there are a lot of scams as well. Make sure to check the validity of scholarships on sites like this:


http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0082-scholarship-and-financial-aid-scams


That being said, the US government also lists a lot of available grants and scholarships:


https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/grants-scholarships
https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/grants-scholarships/finding-scholarships
http://www.state.gov/m/dghr/flo/c21963.htm


You should also be sure to check your local city, county, and state official sites for options specific to you.

Awesome advice. Thanks, Andy! Student Voices by CV ..

Hi there. Go to your local library where they have books with college listings. Ask for a book that lists scholarships. This will be in the reference section. It is a huge book and it will take some time to sift through to find ones that apply to you. You won't have to worry about scams.


Also, have your tried speaking to your school Guidance Counselor?


Do some research for the best rated community college in your area. A. Get your Associates and transfer college credits to a 4 yr. B. Train in a certificate program of interest at your CC. This is usually 18 to 24 months. Work in the field, save money for 4 yr college to minimize how much loans you will need.

Hi Frank. Thank you for taking the time to submit a response today. Can you make your response more directly applicable to the specific question asked? Students finding this question after searching Google (or similar) will be looking for lists of scholarships and grants, and the lists must provide descriptions of the application process. Providing a location instead of describing a process to follow would make this a more helpful response. Jared Chung BACKER
