Remember, the world is full of diverse scholarships. For instance, there are scholarships specifically for seniors, African Americans, and so on. A proactive step you can take is to conduct an online search for scholarships. Numerous websites dedicated to scholarships are available at your fingertips.
Don't forget to apply for grants, student loans, and FAFSA. It's important to note that you're not required to repay grants or FAFSA, but they do come with their own set of terms and conditions. Make sure you understand these before you proceed.

I would encourage you to not get discouraged if you do not get the first few scholarships that you apply for. After applying many times, I did not get my first scholarship until after the ninth try. If they were easy then everyone would be getting one! Also, many students go after the "big scholarships" but those are usually harder to obtain and get handed out far fewer times. My strategy was to get a handful of small to medium size scholarships that would add up to a large scholarship. Even though this is more work for you these small/medium size scholarships are usually easier and universities/donors hand them out more frequently.
I know it can be frustrating at times but you can do it and remember to keep moving forward!
