Scholarship Tips:

  • Focus on one or two scholarship websites/apps to make the process more manageable. Naviance, Gafutures.org, Scholly.com and Scholaroo.com are great options to search for scholarships geared toward your interests.

  • Remember that many colleges and universities offer merit-based scholarships during the application process. Merit scholarships may be given out automatically to students who meet a specific GPA and test score criteria or awarded through a formal application process.

  • Look at local scholarships offered through civic organizations or local businesses.
