      This is great info. I plan to share the link with friends and family.

      There are so many scholarships out there we just need to know where to look.

      Wow, I am impressed that your daughter got enough money in scholarships to cover her whole first year of college. That's incredible. Most students only get enough to cover a partial amount. Good for her though. Make sure she checks with the financial aid office at her college because they will be aware of some that the college offers and that are only available to upper classmen. There are lots of books about college scholarships. I would suggest going to and getting a used one there and checking them all out. There are more scholarships than what I can list and link to. Good luck to both of you.

      Hey thanks for the info!

      Yesterday I did the income taxes and today it’s my daughter’s college financial stuff for next year. She’s a freshman now and got enough scholarships to cover this year. I just looked over her scholarships and some of them are only for one year, so she has several thousand dollars she won’t be getting next year. II think I’ll have her try the ones you mention in your hubs that apply to those already in college.

      Wow, those Duck tape prom scholarships are big bucks. Too bad we didn’t know about that last year. She went to 8 proms in high school. I wrote a hub complaining about the cost of prom dresses. I think she would have done the Duck tape thing. I saw on that website the school gets $5,000 too for the winner. They would have let her work on it during school I’m sure.

      Wonderful post and I hope that many high school students will find this challenging and useful. I remember applying for scholarships as a student, it was a great opportunity to write and just to enter the contest.

      Hi Mary!

      I have been doing a series on college scholarships. My daughter graduated from college last year and since I ran the Career Center, I have been looking up scholarships for the past 8 years!!! :0) Our rotary club gives a scholarship too, and I could never find out much info. about the Elks because there isn't one near our town and you have to apply for a scholarship through a local Elks Club. I did find often it was the poorest students who got most of the scholarships. But we always had plenty of kids who just didn't want to bother with applying. My daughter won 3 scholarships and then 2 rather large ones from her college under Merit aid, so that really helped.

      You and I both have an interest in college scholarships, don't we? I see mine about my daughter winning 18 is a related one to this one.

      I think a lot of students are reluctant to even apply for fear that it will be a waste of time for them. As I say in my Hub, it does take a lot of time and determination, but it can be done.

      One of my daughter's was out local Rotary Club and the Elks.

      Very informative. Voted UP.

      I have looked at those but by the time I decided to look up scholarships and write hubs about them, the deadlines for certain ones had passed. Hopefully I can catch them and put them on before their due dates in the future. I would love to read a hub about the scholarships you won and how you did it. Does a hub like that exist?

      Thank you for this. I was very success getting scholarships. Don't forget organizations like the elk and masons.
