What is the best approach to find low competition scholarships?

I have noticed that there are literally thousands of scholarship programs out there and there are hundreds that most students would be qualified to apply to. However, I, like most people, don’t have the time or the energy to apply towards hundreds of scholarships in a year, so I need advice on how to narrow down the list of eligible scholarships to focus on the ones that I have the best chance of winning. Ideally, I should look for ones that have the least amount of competition; however, in my experience, most scholarship programs either don’t keep track or are unwilling to divulge the number of qualified applicants they receive each year. Thus, how should I determine if a scholarship has low competition? I assume local ones are most likely less competitive towards national ones. It should be the same situation for scholarships that limit the type of students that can apply. For example, let’s take a look at these two scholarships: Scholarship A: Eligible applicants must be undergraduate computer science, computer engineering, and information technology majors with a 3.5 or higher GPA. Scholarship B: Eligible applicants can be one of the following: high school seniors, undergraduate students, and graduate students who are current or aspiring STEM majors with a 2.0 or higher GPA Clearly, scholarship A severely limits the type of applicants that are eligible compared to the Scholarship B. Thus, Scholarship A is less competitive than Scholarship B, which means that an applicant fitting Scholarship A’s description would stand a much better chance winning Scholarship A than B. What other criteria can one use to determine if a scholarship has low competition, and therefore “winnable?” #scholarships #scholarship #college-scholarships #scholar #financial-aid

Why is it so difficult for non-traditional students to get financial aid?

As a student who is not right out of high school, nor has the ability to have parental assistance, I have found it almost impossible to find scholarships and/or grants for someone such as myself that is classified as a non-traditional student. Not to mention, it's impossible to obtain student loans if you have poor credit and have no available co-signer. It makes paying for college very difficult. #financialaid #nontraditionalstudent #loans #college-scholarships

How often should I apply for scholarships?

How can I get the scholarships I need?

My dad works with the government and earns enough money to make us ineligible for many need-based scholarships, but his pay alone isn't enough to help me pay for my college career. How can I make every application count? #scholarships #scholarship #college #college-scholarships #college-applications #scholarship-applications

Where can you find scholarships that will give you more than $1,000?

All the scholarships I have been applying to are just $1,000. I know money is money and receiving any kind of that for college is good, but I just want to help my parents out more. If anyone can help me figure that out, I will be grateful! #collegeisstressful #college-scholarships
