Hi there! It's great that you're already thinking about scholarships to help pay for college. I've gone through this process with my child recently, and I can share some resources that we found helpful. First, start with your high school guidance counselor; they can be a wealth of information and often have access to local or school-specific scholarships. They might also have tips on how to search for scholarships suited to your interests and qualifications. Next, consider using scholarship search engines like Fastweb, Scholarships.com, and Cappex. These websites have large databases of scholarships and can help you find ones tailored to your profile. Additionally, check out the websites of colleges you're interested in, as they often have scholarships specifically for their students. Don't forget to explore professional organizations and community foundations, as they may offer scholarships related to your future career goals or local area. Lastly, do some research on potential national scholarships, such as the Coca-Cola Scholars Program, the Gates Scholarship, or the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. These are highly competitive but come with significant rewards. Remember, it's important to start early and apply to as many scholarships as you can. Best of luck in your search!
