How can I find scholarships to help pay for college?

Hello, I'm a junior and I'm starting to think about how I'm going to pay for college. I know that scholarships can help, but I'm not sure where to find them or how to apply. Can anyone recommend resources or tips for finding scholarships? Thanks in advance!

Hello! It's great that you're starting to think about paying for college early. Scholarships are indeed a fantastic way to help cover the costs. When my child was in your shoes, we found a few different resources to help search for scholarships. First, try checking out websites like Fastweb, Scholarships.com, and Cappex. They allow you to create a profile and will match you with scholarships based on your interests, achievements, and background. Don't forget to also check with your high school guidance counselor, as they often have information on local scholarships and can help you with the application process. Additionally, look at the websites of the colleges you're interested in, as many of them offer merit-based scholarships for incoming students. Finally, consider reaching out to local organizations, such as community foundations, nonprofits, or businesses, as they may offer scholarships to students in your area. Best of luck in your search!
