Scholarships are available for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.

Here are some tips for a successful search:

·       Begin your search early in high school and early in the year. Many scholarships come out in the fall that you might qualify for, if you wait until the second half of the year to begin applying you might miss out on something good.

·       Make time to search for scholarships. It takes time to read the qualifications criteria and if you give yourself alotted time to do it, you will feel less overwhelmed.

·       Scholarships should always be free. Stay away from those scholarships that ask for money upfront.

·       Check with your employer or your parent’s employer for possible sponsor scholarships. Many businesses want to help out their employees by sponsoring them or their children to go to school.

·       Stack scholarships. Don't rule out smaller scholarships. Many times there is less competition for the smaller offers.

·       Write one really good essay and use it for multiple scholarships if they don't give you a prompt.

·       Watch deadlines. You can't turn in late work. When the deadline passes it passes.

·        Create a separate email for your scholarship searches. You will receive "college spam" and you don't want your working email to fill up with information that you don't need.
