Scholarships

"Shed light on the path and the Journey is easy." ...Pennie Douglas

Scholarships are one of the most important elements in going to college. With college costs going up, attaining scholarships are vital in being able to attend the college of your choice. As of now, scholarships should be your second job. First apply for financial aid through FAFSA every year of college. In addition, whether you are a freshman in high school or a senior in college, you should always be looking for and applying for scholarships.

Don't pay money for financial aid or any scholarship application fee. Just think, if you are looking for money to pay for college, why would you spend money? When applying for scholarships never give out your credit card information, bank account, social security number or any bank PIN numbers.

There are four major categories for scholarships

Most common sites are FASTWEB.com and BigFuture. Be creative in your search. Try applying for local scholarships first, then seeking scholarships in your field of interest.
