There are a few ways to apply for scholarships as a high school junior. First, you can find scholarships in your local community - for example, you can go to your school's office and see if any organizations or companies are looking for scholarship submissions or if your school is offering any directly.
Another way to look for scholarships is online. There are plenty of free websites with scholarships, but it can be hard to find legitimate ones and even harder to get them. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Don't apply for scholarships that are easy to apply to, or are just email/sign-up-based. These are really difficult to get as they have a lot of applicants and the bar for entry is low. For a scholarship to be more attainable, you'll want to find ones that ask for a GPA, resume, essay, and other components that you can submit. You can also look for scholarships with narrow applicant pools, like ones just for juniors, just for students in your county/state, or just for your prospective career - or a combination of these restrictions. Finding scholarships that you qualify for and can submit a meaningful response to will increase your chances of actually winning them.
