FINDING SCHOLARSHIP SOURCES
You should apply for as many scholarships as you can to help finance your college education, but do you know how to find them? Some of the obvious and not so obvious ways to find scholarships you may be eligible for are:
MISD SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES WEBPAGE
HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELORS AND TEACHERS
Discuss which college majors and careers interest you with your teachers and counselors. Visit bulletin boards where your school posts scholarship information and go through information available.
HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY, PUBLIC LIBRARY OR BOOKSTOORE
These places always carry directories and guides on scholarships – talk to the librarian on help in finding these. Visit half price bookstores to find more scholarship sources at reasonable prices.
Visit Web sites like Adventures in Education (www.AIE.org) and use search engines to find other sources. www.google.com is also another excellent source. Also type in “high school scholarships” to find some outstanding opportunities. You might try adding some key words such as “chemistry” or “sports” to get even better results.
COLLEGES OF SCHOOLS YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING
Schools can help you find sources of scholarships. Call admission office for help. The colleges are also good at finding out about scholarships offered by state and local government agencies.
Parent’s workplaces are good sources of scholarships. Check with them to see if any are available.
CHURCH, SYNAGOGUE OR OTHER RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS
These places have a long history of having very reliable sources of scholarships. Ask the preacher of priest if they have any available and remember, they can also be great references for resumes if you need them.
LOCAL, STATE AND NATIONAL BUSINESSES
Many types of businesses give out scholarships or have funds for students and it is part of their responsibility to participate as positive members of their community. Research company websites, call the company’s main number and ask about any programs, or recruit parents or friends to help you with the search.
BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY
The different branches of the military are great sources of scholarship offers. You may have to serve in some capacity in order to qualify, but sometimes, they might pay for college before you actually have to start your service. Local recruiting offices or guidance counselors can help you with this search.
On your search, keep a notebook of what you find, with dates, numbers, addresses and use bookmarks on your Web browser. You will want to print out several pages of the programs you are interested in.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SEARCH!
