Scholarships
-a financial aid tool, most sought after by parents and students. There are basically two types of scholarships...

  • College specific scholarships are awarded by the college you are applying to and will be awarded based on academics, SAT/ACT scores, talents, etc. To find out what scholarships colleges have available, call the financial aid office of your school of choice or go to their website and click on "financial aid" or "scholarships."
  • Outside sources are given to students for a wide variety of qualifications. Each outside scholarship has its own deadlines, its own qualifications and its own award amount—these must be researched.
