College Scholarship

College is expensive, that's a given. If you can't afford college out of your own pocket, you have the options of a scholarship, grant, or loan.

Scholarships are great because your don't have to pay them back, so most students seek out various scholarships to apply for in hopes to pay for the majority of their tuition.

You can find scholarships per certain business, such as AFLAC and McDonalds. Community groups give scholarships, such as the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. Private groups will, also, award scholarships.

Scholarships are everywhere, it's just a matter of finding them.

Where to Find Scholarships

As a high school senior, you can question your school counselor about college scholarships. Usually senior counselors have a growing list of available scholarships that students can apply for.

I know at my school the counselors had packets of scholarships that went unapplied for because student were not aware of them.

Think about it. If you and maybe a small handful of other students question the counselor about scholarships. That's only a small percent of applicants that are in the pool for the scholarship money.

There is so much scholarship money that is not awarded on a yearly basis. So, I would definitely suggest talking to your senior school counselor as well as your senior teachers about available scholarships.

Look For Scholarships Online

There are a number of free websites that you can join in order to actively hunt for college scholarships.

These websites post scholarships for both high school students and college students.

You can look for scholarships by subject, school, religion, gender, ethnicity, military background, and so much more.

If you just take the time and look for scholarships, you can find so many out there that you may never would have thought were truly out there and available for students.
