Paul’s Answer

That’s great info from Michael - definitely follow up on that. Also check with the schools you might be interested in. They probably have their own set of scholarships, based on various criteria.

Also, dont forget to look at organizations in your area. Civic groups, even churches sometimes have scholarships. My mother was a member of the Rotary, and I won a $1000 scholarship through them.

Best of luck!

Paul recommends the following next steps:

Check individual schools for available scholarships
Check civic organizations in your area
Check organizations your family members are a part of
