  • Once you've applied and been accepted to your colleges, be sure to search the college website for scholarship opportunities. 
  • Ask your parents and guardians about possible scholarship opportunities through their worksites and through organizations/clubs with which they are affiliated. 
  • Scholarship Search Sites:  You should never have to pay for scholarships--if a site asks for a "registration fee", or states "For $50 we'll find you $50,000 in scholarships", be cautious--these are possibly scams.
