Gabriel’s Answer

Hello, Christopher! My esteemed colleagues are correct - please let me add something.

You can apply for outside scholarships - the two most popular sites are fastweb.com and scholarships.com.

Rule #1 - never pay to apply for a scholarship.

There are a couple things to be mindful of...while these services are free, the exchange is that you may get the occasional "junk mail" sent your way. My advice...create an e-mail account JUST for the purposes of looking for scholarships. That way, you can go in once a week and pick through what is or isn't valid. If you use your everyday e-mail address you may get tired of the junk and unsubscribe. Also, do NOT use your high school e-mail address...for this, or when filling out the FAFSA. Many high schools deactivate the e-mail addresses when you graduate...so colleges or other parties will be trying to send you things that you will never get.

If looking at scholarships at individual schools, make sure they have your most up-to-date grade and test scores...every school has a different formula. And remember...you may get 10k at one school and 20k at another...but make sure you look at tuition/housing costs when you look at those award letters.

You got this...

Make sure that you maintain a good GPA. And if you participate in extracurricular activities, you may obtain a scholarship that way. Take with your counselor to see if he/she know of any scholarships that may be available.

Nadia’s Answer

Hi Christopher - I think the first step is to speak to a counselor at your school. They will have the intel on which scholarships and grants are available to you. Are you a part of any associations or groups that are statewide or national? Those types of groups may have scholarship opportunities. Do you have a special musical skill or are you a part of an athletic team? Some of the less joined teams or groups usually have opportunities as well - for example, the tuba...not many students play the tuba so there is a lot of untapped money out there for tuba players. Also, consider applying to a smaller college, not one of the big state schools. The smaller schools also have a lot of money to provide to students, but, at the bigger schools, there is a lot more competition. I hope this gives you some ideas. Best of luck to you!

Hi! Depending on your state, many states have programs geared toward students that want to be educators. One thing you can do is research Phi Delta Kappa https://pdkintl.org/

This a great resource. In addition, you should research schools that have reputable education programs. You can decide later what grades you are interested in teaching. Volunteering at an elementary school or after-school program is also a way to get hands on experience.

Hi Christopher,

Not sure what grade you're currently in, but below are a few steps you can take to ensure you get into a good college and get money to pay for it. I will also recommend a specific one

1. Maintain a good GPA. The best scholarships will require u to have a good to excellent GPA (3.5 and above). remember, these are competitive so the more you can stand out the better
2. Extracurricular - DO NOT underestimate the importance of having a good mix of impactful and passion-driven extracurricular activities either with organizations affiliated to your school or with Church and your communities. Do some basic research on the internet and Talk to your counselor and family members
3. check out the Jack Kent Cook foundation scholarship. This is a very generous scholarship that could change your life. It definitely changed mine; https://www.jkcf.org/our-scholarships/

Nandjui Richard recommends the following next steps:

Hello,

A lot of schools offer scholarships automatically and some you have to apply for. Ask your recruitment person. In addition visit websites and google education scholarships.
