In addition to completing university and college applications and finishing school with a strong academic average, high school seniors should also devote some time to apply for scholarships. They are an excellent way to supplement the cost of tuition, room and board, books and other expenses and the best part is that they don’t have to be paid back. EVER. That’s free money, people...why not take advantage of it?
If the thought of winning a scholarship seems impossible, you’re probably not looking in the right places. Sure, there will be lots of competition but if you only apply for the scholarships that pertain specifically to you and your unique situation, your chances of winning increase significantly. Check out the links to some popular scholarship databases below, set up a unique profile, and you will find plenty of scholarships you will be eligible for; some are easy, some require work and some are downright strange but you won’t receive any awards unless you apply...so get started!
