Hi there! It's awesome that you're seeking merit-based scholarships to help with college expenses. A great starting point would be to visit your high school's guidance office, as they often have information on local and regional scholarships. They should have a list of opportunities you can browse through.

Furthermore, consider using scholarship search engines like Fastweb, Scholarships.com, and Cappex to find scholarships tailored to your interests and qualifications. Lastly, don't forget to check with the colleges you're applying to. Many of them offer merit-based scholarships that you can apply for through the application process. Some schools, however, might have separate applications or requirements for those specific scholarships.

Best of luck in your scholarship search!
