  • Apply to several colleges & universities.  You may not be accepted to your first choice so apply several places and APPLY EARLY!
    Ask the college admissions staff about scholarship opportunities at the college/university you are applying to. Some have scholarships you are automatically eligible for, but some have separate applications and deadlines. 

     

There are so many opportunities available- check out the "Online Scholarships" Page that is updated weekly during the school year as I am made aware of them. Click the link above.
