Scholarships and financial aid are your bestfriends when it come to wanting to have a full ride. Most college offer a packet of scholarships to first year students. For example, the college I went had the packet on their website. They categorized them specific to the degree you're seeking and provided descriptions of the qualifications needed for the scholarship. You then filled out a cover page that was provided and attached it to the other documents need for the scholarship being applied for. Then you sent in all of the scholarships you wanted to apply for into the financial aid department of the college. They then sent them to appropriate businesses. One thing to remember though is don't feel like you can't apply for a scholarship because you feel like you don't meet the requirements. A lot of scholarships aren't given out because people don't apply for them. It never hurts to try.
D'Anna recommends the following next steps:
- Apply for TONS of scholorships!
- See if the college you're interested in offers a Scholarship Packet
