Emily A.’s Answer
The short answer is yes, you can always apply. This doesn't mean that you will necessarily get the scholarship, but it is always worth the try!
Look into the requirements for what ever scholarship you want to apply for. Usually, it will specify what kind of GPA you need. Sometimes, scholarships will request an essay and may take your writing abilities into account more than your GPA.
In the end, the worst that can happen is that you don't get the scholarship, but then the outcome is the same as if you never applied at all. The best case-scenario is that you get financial help!
Little risk, high reward.
