Hello Sú, this is a great question. if you're looking for places to apply for scholarships your guidance office. Don't just flag the 4-year scholarships anything that pays money is what you're looking for. You can also find essays that pay for your tuition. There is always new information available you just have keep look. Best of luck

Emily’s Answer

Hi Su, there are a few places where you can apply for scholarships. College Board is a good place to start and also speaking with your school's guidance counselor. There may be a local charity or business that is looking to provide students scholarships and your guidance counselor should be able to provide more information on it. There are also certain states that will provide in-state scholarships to students who meet certain criteria and plan to study at a school in that state. There is also a financial aid office in every college and they will always post about scholarship opportunities.

Jimmy’s Answer

Hello,

I used Bright Futures which was only for Florida schools but depending on the state , they offer individual plans that can be used at a number of schools. For example, I knew I wanted to go to school in Florida but not sure which exact school. So I was able to save funds for college and was able to put that towards my future tuition. One thing I'll say, is the better the grades you have the more they help out with the cost. Always do your best because not only will you get accepted into more schools but they will actually pay more of your tuition depending on things like you GPA, AP courses, SAT, etc.

Good luck!

Fellenia’s Answer

Hi Su,

I would recommend using various scholarship websites such as College Board or Fastweb. In addition, reach out to your high school counselor and seeing if they can connect you to more specific/local scholarship resources.

A lot of scholarships are also look for specific traits such as athletic, academic, or leadership-focused scholarships. When searching on the internet for these opportunities, it could be beneficial to include these keywords within your search such as "community-service scholarship or sports scholarship."

There are also some great programs out there such as the POSSE Foundation that provide students with 4 year full tuition scholarships to specific partner institutions.

Russell’s Answer

I went to Elon University, and they offer a wide array of scholarships/finAid opportunities. And from experience, many people who attend Elon are on some sort of scholarship or finaid assistance. Additionally, Elon is rated one of the best bang for your buck universities by college board. I recommend looking into Elon for some good scholarship opportunities.

Natnael’s Answer

Su, Great question! Scholarships in general are hard to get but that should not discourage you to try find as many as you can. The best strategy I have seen is applying to as many small scholarships as possible. They will add up. There are $500, $1000, $2000 to $10,000 scholarships that you can apply with or without essay. You can go into 'Fastweb Scholarships' fastweb.com and apply to as many as you can. I think you just need endurance in this process. Also think of other ways to pay for college too. Like starting out at community college, see if there are opportunities in going to the Service, local scholarships etc
Also check the school and the department you want to attend to if there are department specific scholarships. I know it’s a lot of work but you got this Su. Good Luck!

Hi Su

College Board is good resource to search for scholarships. Also, there may be programs within your state and local area available to you. You might want to check with an administrator or counsel at your school who should be able to assist you in finding different scholarships.

Eric’s Answer

Hi Su!

Finding scholarships can be tricky, but for me the most helpful website has been College Board. It has a large database that allows you to search based on your interests, careers goals, and much more. Also, as Sikawayi stated, your guidance office would be a great start. They assist students with finding scholarships year after year and may even be able to recommend a few for you. For me, what was most helpful in finding scholarships was widening my search. You wont always get the scholarships you think you're most suited for, but you may even get a few that you didn't expect, the most important thing is to apply apply apply! I hope this helps!

College Board is a good medium.
Also check out GoingMerry.com.
UC has a good medium to give scholarship for those who have taken AP courses, high SAT and done volunteering work. Check out their website too.
