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.
