Margret’s Answer

There are a lot of websites that list easy to apply for scholarships that are not necessarily based on grades. My son is going to be a freshman at the University of Maine in the fall and we have been researching such scholarships. I did a google search for unique scholarships, unknown scholarships and scholarships that are specific to his major or interest. There are a lot of scholarships out there that people are not aware of but you can find them through a google search. Also, there may be a lot of local businesses or churches in your community that offer scholarships as well. You can also reach out to the university you are going to attend to see if they offer specific scholarships for your major. My son qualified and was awarded scholarship, without even applying, from UMaine that specifically covers tuition, which is a big help (since we live in Texas) in covering out of state tuition. Also, your school guidance counsel would be a good person to reach out to for help with your search. Good luck!
