Hey there! It's great that you're starting to look for scholarships early. There are indeed a lot of scholarships available, and it can be overwhelming at first. Here are a few resources to help you get started:

1. Your high school counselor's office should have a list of local and regional scholarships that you may be eligible for. Make sure to check with them and see what's available in your area.

2. CollegeVine is a fantastic resource for finding scholarships. They have a comprehensive database of scholarships and helpful tools to assist you in your search. Create a free account and start browsing!

3. Fastweb (fastweb.com) is another well-known scholarship search website. They have a huge database of scholarships and can provide personalized recommendations based on your profile.

4. Don't forget to look at the websites of the colleges you're interested in, as they often have scholarships available specifically for their students. For example, my daughter received a merit-based scholarship from her college that covers a significant portion of her tuition.

Remember, the key is to be persistent and apply for as many scholarships as possible. Good luck in your search, and I hope you find some great opportunities!
