Are scholarships hard to get?
It seems like scholarships are super competitive. But I also hear that thousands of dollars go unclaimed each year.
Don't give up!! Yes, scholarships are super competitive. There are a lot of students who cannot afford to pay for college on their own so they look for every opportunity possible to get free money. Yes, there are thousands of dollars that go unclaimed each year. This is because there is no single site that lists every single scholarship in one place. Furthermore, you still would have to apply for each scholarship individually. Looking for and filling out scholarship applications is very time consuming but you have to do it. Start with scholarships(dot)com.
Best of luck!
