I am applying to several schools in the UC and Cal State system but have no idea how to apply or where to apply for scholarships. Is there someone who can provide links and walk me through it in as much detail as possible?
So they best scholarships are institutional ones and you get that when your admitted to the school. Others to look at are private ones in the community or an organizational one such as an NHS or a church scholarship.
If you desperately need scholarship some databases are scholarship owl.com scholarships.com fastweb.com cappex.com and for some schools raise.me.
Hope this helps!
As for filling it out just input the required background info and then typically write the essay and follow the submissions instructions listed.
In addition to the answer by @DEBATERMAX, when you fill out the UC app there is a scholarship page where you can check off boxes for scholarships that apply to you. Note that these are typically super obscure like, "Student from Yolo County interested in studying Environmental Science", but there are some more generalized scholarships like those for "second-generation Americans" or for "gay students". These scholarships ONLY USE the information that you submit on the UC application.
