Some examples of Scholarship Sites

Hello, just speaking from the perspective of someone who's been searching since freshman year. CollegeBoard is a pretty good place to start since it sorts available sites based on your stats, and Bold.org and ScholarshipPoints are pretty good as well since they're free and can even include non-essay scholarships for when you're too busy to write an essay (which happens pretty frequently in upper grades or when you've got extracurriculars running your life). Tell me which one of these worked better for you!

ScholarshipOwl is a great scholarship platform! They even have a discord community where they do contest and help support your scholarship journey.

I wasn't aware of that, it's nice to see there's a way to be in touch with the rest of the scholarship community! Hope you share this info with other people!

My two favorites are probably Bold.org and Going Merry. Both are free and have lots of scholarship opportunities.

Yeah, and it helps that there's a large variety to choose from since no one's made of one aspect! I'd love to see an explanation post on what Going Merry is--then even more scholarship seekers will reap some benefits from it!
