I'm a senior this year and I've gotten two decisions back thus far (both acceptances-from Western Washington and University of Oregon) and I'm looking for some scholarships to apply to. UO awarded me the apex scholarship based on my GPA, but I'm looking for some journalism-specific scholarships as well as scholarships for queer students, Jewish students, and students with learning disabilities. I am hoping to decrease the price of college as much as possible! Also, if anyone knows when decisions for University of Denver and Northeastern come out, I applied to both places early action and haven't heard back from them yet.
You can get on a website like fastweb.com or bold.org, enter your demographics/credentials, and it will match you with scholarships you can apply for. Most will ask if you have disabilities, if you're LGBTQ, your religion, activities, honors, etc. Not sure about UD but Northeastern looks like it releases EA decisions by February 1. Good luck!
I recommend looking through CollegeVine's numerous scholarship articles to find scholarships that you would be a good fit for. Hope this helps!
I think you should ask if you can combine scholarships at University of Oregon. Then, maybe try filling out the general scholarship application first. I think they would usually send you a link to scholarship dashboard. Sign up and see scholarships you may qualify for.
