General Scholarship Information
Scholarships are a key way to fund your education. It's different from a loan because you don't have to pay this money back. There are so many out there! Look for scholarships that are specific to your school first and once you have applied to those, start expanding your search. Seek other scholarships through parent/student employers, organizations, church, special interest groups or websites that pertain to your interests and experience. It can seem overwhelming when searching for scholarships. But remember, it doesn't cost you anything to apply and the more you apply the more likely it is you'll receive funds!
Here is a list of General Scholarship Websites for free searches and resources to explore. Please keep in mind that you should not have to pay to search for scholarships or to submit applications; check out legitimate websites that offer this information to you.
