Where to look for scholarships?

So I’ve applied for about $95,000 in scholarships in the past week. Most of them are no essay scholarships and based solely on chance so I’d be shocked if I won any of those lol

Do y’all know any good places that I could find scholarships and how to increase my odds of getting them?

Homeschoooled, too :)

Fastweb is great (once you turn 16). I also love scholarships.com. They dig up all the small niche interest scholarships. I used to enter tons of no-essay scholarships but never won. I HIGHLY advise applying for scholarships that either 1) have very narrow criteria (like, future animal science majors) OR 2) essays that require something of you- an essay, project, or even a photograph! Choose essays where you will actually have a chance (your hobby, interest, future major, talents...) and it will be so worth your time.

Essay scholarships also help you prepare for college admissions. The more essays you write, the better!

Colleges also offer merit scholarships. That will be something to consider when you begin applying.

Hope this helps and lmk if you have any questions!
