One of the first things you have to do is complete a FAFSA. Have the FAFSA sent to each school you are applying to so they can determine if you are eligible for any grants or scholarships. In addition, you have to do some research on your own by searching the internet. A good place to start is scholarships.com. The site, and others like it, list a lot of scholarships in one place so you can make your search easier. Google scholarships for other websites since each site may have a different list to choose from.
