Hey! I'm glad you're starting to look for scholarships early. It's a great way to reduce the financial burden of college. There are several resources you can use to find scholarships:

1. Fastweb (www.fastweb.com) - A popular website that matches students with scholarships based on their profiles.

2. Scholarships.com (www.scholarships.com) - Another good website that allows you to search thousands of scholarships and grants.

3. Your high school counselor - They often have information about local scholarships and can guide you through the process.

4. College websites - Many colleges offer scholarships for incoming students, so be sure to check their financial aid pages.

As for tips, I would say to start applying early and often, be organized with deadlines, and make sure your application materials are polished and tailored to each scholarship. Good luck with your search, and I hope you find some great opportunities!
