What are some good resources for finding college scholarships?

Hey there, I'm a high school junior, and I'm starting to look for scholarships to help pay for college. It's a bit overwhelming, and I'm not sure where to start. What are some good resources for finding scholarships that I might be eligible for? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there! I completely understand how overwhelming the scholarship search can be, but don't worry, there are plenty of resources available to help you out. One of the best places to start is with your high school counselor, as they often have access to local and regional scholarship opportunities that you might not find elsewhere. Additionally, you can check with the financial aid office of the colleges you're interested in, as they may have scholarships specific to their school. Online databases like Fastweb, Cappex, and Scholarships.com are also great resources for finding scholarships based on your interests, skills, and demographics. Don't forget to look into community organizations, professional associations, and foundations that may offer scholarships as well. Lastly, make sure to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when it becomes available in October of your senior year, as this will open up opportunities for need-based financial aid. Best of luck in your scholarship search, and I hope you find the resources you need to help make college more affordable!
