Hi! Most full ride scholarships are given straight through your college. In order to get one, you have to be super competitive for the school (think a higher GPA, SAT, extracurricular than the median of most students). Some schools have honors programs for highly qualified students that will give full ride awards. You might want to consider applying to colleges that are smaller and less prestigious, and don't really match your academic level, since these schools will be working much harder to attract super strong candidates and will be much more likely to give more awards in exchange for your attending their school.

Good luck!
