Can I still get scholarships if my financial aid doesn't cover everything?

Hello! I'm a junior and I'm worried about college costs. If my financial aid package doesn't cover everything, can I still apply for scholarships? How do I find good scholarships to apply for? Thanks for any help!

Hey there! I totally understand your concern about college costs, as I've been through the process with my own child. The short answer is yes, you can definitely still apply for scholarships even if your financial aid package doesn't cover everything. In fact, it's a great idea to apply for scholarships to help bridge the gap between your financial aid and the total cost of attendance. There are many scholarships available out there, and it's just a matter of finding the ones that fit your profile and interests. A good place to start is by talking to your high school guidance counselor, as they often have information on local scholarships. You can also do some research online using scholarship search engines like Fastweb, Scholarships.com, and Cappex. Be sure to apply for both merit-based and need-based scholarships, as well as those that cater to specific interests or backgrounds. Just remember that applying for scholarships can be a time-consuming process, so start early and be persistent. Good luck!
