Scholarship Matching and Search Engines

Years ago counselors used to keep a file cabinets full of scholarships and distribute them to select students.  Today this process is mostly online.  There are thousands of scholarships out there, and believe it or not, some go unclaimed each year.  Because each student/parent only has so much time to apply, it's best to apply for scholarships where you meet the criteria.  Scholarship matching sites can help!  

 

This is how it works:  You sign up, and answer questions.   They will email you scholarships that are a match for you.  Some will be general, and some will be very specific.  You choose which ones to apply for based on your time limitations.  Beware of any site that charges you a fee for this service, as the most reputable sites are free to use.

 

The more you apply, the greater your chances.  Best of luck, and let your counselor know if you need assistance.
