Is getting straight A's a good way to get a good scholarship ? And what if you were to have one B ? Would that effect your chance to recieve a scholarship . Also what kind of scholarships could you get that would be very beneficial ?
I want to be an orthopedic surgeon which will require 4 years of undergraduate, 4 years of medical school, and up to 5 years of residency. So I know it will be very important to get a scholarship and I would appreciate your advice and opinions.

Some scholarships for college are merit-based. You earn them by meeting or exceeding certain standards set by the scholarship-giver. Merit scholarships might be awarded based on academic achievement or on a combination of academics and a special talent, trait, or interest. Other scholarships are based on financial need. You can learn about scholarships in several ways, including contacting the financial aid office at the school you plan to attend and checking information in a public library or online.
Tanya A. recommends the following next steps:
1. Your school's Office of Financial Aid, who can direct you to lots of internal scholarships where you'll only be competing against other students at your school.
2. The offices for your particular major/department, where you might find lucrative scholarships/paid internships you can aim for.
3. Unions/Industry groups, whether they're related to your industry of choice or whether a family member happens to work for one.
4. Scholarship Search Engines like fastweb, unigo, collegemonk, nitro, and scholarship owl.
Good luck, and remember, the more you apply for the greater your chance of winning!
