How do I pay for college?

Updated Viewed 183 times

I have applied to multiple scholarships but none of them seems very serious, how can I really find the right ones for me? #college #tuition #scholarships #financial-aid

Have you applied for federal aid scholarships? Those are pretty serious and most offer to cover a certain percentage of tuition based on whether you meet certain criteria (i.e. grades, SAT/ACT scores, GPA). I also recommend trying FastWeb.com, Cappex, Unigo, and Niche for your scholarship search. They help gather scholarships together that you qualify for and they tell you how many people are likely to apply, how much work you should expect to put in to each scholarship, and a bit of background on it too. They are super helpful and I highly recommend them. Sofia A.

Some scholarships are needs-based but there are PLENTY of others that are based on things like merit, community involvement, major, location, race, religion, interests, participation in the military, having been affected by a natural disaster and many, MANY more! Here are some resources to help you in your search:
