Give some of these sites a try. A lot of them let you type in specific demographic information like race, intended major, where you're from, if you're a first generation college student, etc.

And here is an article that gives tips and tricks about getting scholarship and grant help. So many scholarships go unused each year - this breaks down how to track down scholarships you're highly likely to get.

Donné Michelle’s Answer

Hi Amber!

I have a teenager that is going through the same thing currently as she plans next year to go away to college. Scholarships are offered to students who meet certain requirements. For example, scholarships may be given to students who have strong academic or athletic skills, who are members of a specific ethnic group or whose parents work for a certain company. Scholarships given by colleges are the most common type of scholarships.

Check out a college’s website, catalog and financial aid materials for information on the scholarships it offers. Awards can be offered on a university-wide basis or within a particular college or major. Your college may also automatically put your name in for its scholarships when you submit financial aid forms. Ask a financial aid officer if this is the case that can also assist with your FAFSA.

Good Luck!
