Samuel L.’s Answer

The best way to start your scholarship search is to visit the UCI website to see what scholarships are available. Don't limit yourself to scholarships that are UCI specific. In my experience, it is always a good idea to provide yourself with as many options as possible. This is how I would proceed after identifying options on the UCI website

Samuel L. recommends the following next steps:

Reach out to the contact for each scholarship for which you think you might qualify. If there is no direct contact person, call the school and set up an "in person" or phone appointment with the Director of Scholarships so you can introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in the scholarship. Ask if they have tips on how to increase your eligibility for the scholarship.
Do some research based on your interests. For example, if you're a gamer, call up your favorite game maker and see if they offer scholarships or possibly internships. If you can secure an internship & then you get hired, your employer may have a program that pays for you to go to school or offers a Tuition Reimbursement Program.
