Outside of federal and state aid, scholarships help many students to lower their out-of-pocket costs of attending college. Scholarships are available from a variety of sources, so students should be encouraged to explore all possible options. Unlike all of the federal aid programs coming from a single application (the FAFS), scholarships will all have separate applications and requirements. Some may require additional materials, including transcripts or essays.
There are numerous resources on the Internet for finding scholarships The key to searching is to look to FREE search websites. Students should never need to pay for a scholarship search or to apply for a private scholarship.
The search can start their junior year or earlier. Here are some of the largest and most popular FREE ONLINE SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH SITES.
