Hello, I'm a junior in high school and I wanted to know what's the best websites for applying for scholarships?
scholarships.com is my go-to! They provide a ton of scholarships that can be specific to you. It is my favorite scholarship database and has helped me find so many scholarships regarding my transgender and queer identity.
Personally I hateeee applying to scholarships with Bold.org, Niche, College Board, etc they take so much time and then your chances of actually obtaining them is unlikely because of course you're competing with thousands of people. I haven't really looked into many, but on the other hand there's a website called raise me which gives micro scholarships for academics, extracurriculars, etc from different colleges. I warn that some colleges don't provide these micro scholarship opportunities though so I suggest looking around on there. Also another is "finesseyoureducation" has a good database for scholarships, if you have an advisor you can. Lastly you can ask if there are local scholarships provided so good luck!
hey! I use Bold.org, Niche.com, Fastweb.com, and Raise.me for scholarship searches. these websites often have no-essay scholarships that you can easily and quickly apply for as well as scholarships that require essays/more effort to apply. Raise.me doesn't require essays at all; it just asks you to enter your grades, GPA, extracurriculars, etc. and matches you to micro-scholarships that certain colleges throughout the U.S. offer.
I hope this helps, and best of luck on your scholarship search!!
CollegeVine has a large archive of blog posts about scholarships that juniors can apply to. I also encourage you to take a look into CollegeVine's own weekly scholarship raffle. All you have to do to enter into a drawing of the weekly $500 prizes is create a free CollegeVine account. Hope this helps!
