More Scholarships

If you need to find more scholarships that fit you better or are geared toward your major you can find scholarships by using the Google search engine or by purchasing a scholarship guide in the form of a book. The best source I have found is The Ultimate Scholarship Book.

I love this book and have used it for years, starting when I ran the career center at a high school. I find it an amazing source of scholarships. And they have many that are quite specific that I don't include in my list because my list is designed for the general population of college students. And they print an updated version each year so you can get have access to the newest scholarships every year.
