I am currently a junior in high school. I am nervous for college because of how expensive it can be. What are some good websites I can apply for scholarships?
Earn karma by helping others:
Cocacola Scholarship, Taco Bell scholarship, SME scholarship for engineering students, there are scholarships for regilious organizations as well that you can google search. Many high schools have community scholarships that can give you a couple thousand based on merit.
Here are a few sites that I recommend:
- Scholly App
You can also be more creative in your scholarship search by keeping up with YouTubers who post about scholarships as sometimes they will share opportunities. For e.g: You can watch Gabriella Carter's videos as she recently shared some scholarship opportunities in a video.
You can also search Google for "Law Firm Scholarships". Plenty of law firms offer scholarships.
Additionally, you can keep up with blogs on reddit and college confidential. Many students post about scholarships on these websites.
https://bold.org/ — build your scholarship dashboard and apply for personalized scholarships with the best chances.
https://scholarshipowl.com/ — a personalized scholarship search engine that finds offers based off of things like state; major; HS, Undergrad, Grad; ethnicity; income; etc.
https://www.scholarships.com/ — a general scholarship search engine that will allocate all scholarships offered in an area
I feel the same way if you are of a low income family, disabled, of a certain race or have military parents you qualify for a wide variety of scholarships.
My favorites are:
- Scholarships.com (but @OFHanson already got that one!)
Websites are great to check out but are sure to also look at your local scholarships from your school or your community. Not a lot of people will apply for them because they don't know that there or that the scholarships don't give out as much money. You might be able to get more money by applying to a lot of smaller, less competitive scholarships.
To keep this community safe and supportive:
- Be kind and respectful!
- Keep posts relevant to college admissions and high school.
- Don’t ask “chance-me” questions. Use CollegeVine’s chancing instead!
