Paul’s Answer

Most colleges and universities have foundations, which offer opportunities to apply and potentially receive scholarships.

Normally they open once a year and have a variety based on majors, activities, future occupations, and other categories. I would check with the foundation of the college you attend, or will be attending.

Amalya’s Answer

There are some strategies that you can use for applying scholarships. Focus on your motivation letter or the statement of purpose. Try to explain why you are going to follow that career path and in what ways the scholarship can help you. Take care of each section of your college application.
All the best

Martha’s Answer

That's a great question, Stef. Do you mean finding a scholarship, winning the scholarship, or both?

In terms of finding scholarships, if you have financial need, fill out the FAFSA and anything else required by the schools you are applying to. For merit, if you have good grades and/or test scores, some colleges will have honor colleges that award scholarships. Sometimes, there are extra essays or forms for those so research those at your selected schools. Sometimes, even departments have merit scholarship money.

In addition, there may be scholarships for particular interests, such as veterinary medicine, or from local organizations. I would search the internet for scholarships based on interests or even cultural background. Also, ask your guidance counselor for local opportunities.

In terms of winning a scholarship, I agree with Amalya. Explain carefully why you should win their scholarship. And, of course, either have someone else read your essay or re-read yourself a day or so later to be sure that there are no grammatical errors or typos.

Good luck!

Martha recommends the following next steps:
