What are some good ways to find scholarships?

Hi all, I'm a high school junior and I'm starting to look for scholarships to help pay for college. I've been using a few websites to search for them, but I feel like I might be missing out on some opportunities. Do you have any recommendations for finding scholarships that might not be as well-known? Thanks!

Hi there! It's great that you're already thinking about scholarships as a junior. My child is currently in college, and we went through the same process not too long ago. In addition to using scholarship websites, there are several other ways to find scholarships that may not be as well-known. First, be sure to check with your high school guidance counselor. They often have access to local and regional scholarships that may not be posted on the big websites. Local businesses, clubs, and organizations often have scholarships available as well. Make a list of your interests and activities, and see if there are any scholarships related to those. The college you plan to attend might also offer scholarships, so be sure to check their financial aid website. Don't forget to ask your parents if their employers offer any scholarships for employees' children. Finally, use social media to follow scholarship organizations and financial aid experts, as they often post about new opportunities. Good luck in your search, and I hope you find some great scholarships to help with your college expenses!
