Given the potential benefit a student can receive from scholarships, it's best to leave no stone un-turned. With that in mind, here's a list of all the places we recommend you look:
  • FastWeb: FastWeb should be your very first stop. They have a database containing an overwhelming number of scholarship that are easy to search. In addition to scholarships, they offer a lot of other useful information about financial aid, finding a job and more.
  • Prospective Colleges & Universities: Most offer scholarships for academics, athletics or financial need. Ask the university registrar or admissions office for a list of available scholarships to see which ones might be a good match for you.
  • High School Guidance Counselor: He or she should also have a list of available scholarships and may be able to provide some insight on local opportunities such as the last two in our list.
  • Local Government Office and Community Organizations: Perhaps your church or synagogue offers something? Or an organization of local businesses that wants to give back to the community? In my old hometown, there's a popular local marathon and, each year, the organizers give scholarships to select local high school students who run it. If you don't know where to look, do a quick search on Google.
Whatever you do, though, don't pay for a scholarship search. You can find the information for free on your own and--despite what some websites may claim--paying doesn't increase your chances of getting an award.
