How do I get accepted to more scholarships
Answered

During my junior year (I'm arising senior) I applied to at least 20 scholarships every 1-2 months. For the whole year. I never got chosen once. I stopped for a while after school ended. Most of them were no essays, the others were small essays. How can get I accepted to more of them. Without them I don't know how I'm gonna pay for school.

I'm in the same boat. I think you have to continue applying to scholarships because you never know which ones you might get picked for. I heard that summer is the best time to apply for scholarships because many students take a break in the summer from applying leaving better chances to those who applied. One thing, a lot of the no-essay scholarships will have a lot of applicants because they don't have to write anything.

There are many websites that have a list of scholarships you can apply for. Some that I use are https://www.scholarships.com/ , https://scholarships360.org/ , https://bold.org/ . There are so much more website that show many scholarships. You can also search for scholarships that are very specific. For example, if you live in Florida, you can search up "scholarships for Florida high school students."

If you have your school list finalized, you can check to see if your schools offer scholarships or grants for students. Also check to see if the school has good financial aid.

Try applying to scholarships with harder requirements. Fewer people apply to those scholarships, so you would be more likely to win.
