I recommend creating an account with Fastweb. The system will then suggest scholarships you can enter based on your interests and demographics (eg, your public speaking interest).

There are many other similar scholarships websites, but a common mistake is to only enter the no-essay one-click wonder scholarships. Millions of students enter those. You have a better chance of winning something if you have to put in effort (like write an essay, give a speech, etc.)

Also, many colleges offer scholarships based on merit. Check the colleges you are interested in to see what you may qualify for based on your GPA.

Hope this helps and lmk if you have any questions or if you would like me to list some more scholarship websites.
