Scholarship Tips

  • Look for scholarships that apply to you.  Scholarships can be based on merit, financial aid, degree programs, and some scholarships give special consideration to minority students.
  • Start the search early.  You may need to write essays or get letters of recommendation.
  • Read carefully.  Before you apply, make sure you understand the procedures and eligibility.
  • Beware of scholarship sites or agencies that charge a fee.  Use free scholarships searches
  • Look for local scholarships because the applicant pool is smaller.
