Where to find information on college scholarships
The best place to go looking for information on college scholarships is the financial aid office at the institution or school.
The financial aid office at the school would be notified of changes, cancellations, or new offering of scholarships that
might not otherwise show up in other resources. Another valuable tool for finding information on college scholarships is the
Internet. If the prospective students are Internet savvy, then they can look up a variety of sites which list resources for
available scholarships and even how to apply for them.
What kind of scholarships there are?
There are almost as many different types of students as there are different types of scholarships. From gender, race, age, school
year, location, the program that the student is entering, various sports, as well as a multitude of academic scholarships.
If students are coming out of high school, their student counselor can be a great resource when it comes to locating and applying
for scholarships. Also, many of the institutions and colleges themselves can give listings and even offer their own scholarships.
These relate more too academic and sports related areas. When looking for scholarships students can also take a trip to the local
public library to get more information.
