Hi Addison,

It's fantastic that you're considering scholarships this early! Since you're not quite ready to begin the application process, it's a good idea to concentrate on improving your grades and participating in extracurricular activities to ensure your application stands out to scholarship organizations.

Wishing you the best of luck.

To secure scholarships for college, research opportunities that align with your background, interests, and academic goals. Apply widely to increase your chances, pay attention to deadlines and requirements, and tailor your applications. Maintain a strong academic record, engage in extracurricular activities, and seek leadership roles. Request well-crafted letters of recommendation and write compelling essays. Explore scholarships from your college's financial aid office, use online scholarship search engines, and look for local opportunities. Beware of scholarship scams, and never pay to apply. Stay organized, submit applications early, and remember that persistence in applying for scholarships, both large and small, can help significantly reduce your college expenses.

Moises’s Answer

Hey Addison,

There are some things to keep in mind when looking for scholarships. First, the university you decide to attend might offer scholarships for your major or program, but only for students who attend that specific school. If you're a high school freshman, you might not be able to apply for these yet. However, there are plenty of smaller scholarships you can find online. Each one has its own requirements, or some might be open to everyone.

Don't forget to ask your high school counselor for help, as they might have a list of scholarships you can access. Remember, the competition for scholarships can be tough, so you might face a lot of rejections. Just stay positive and keep trying – submitting just one application won't be enough. Good luck!
