Some quick tips on scholarships:
- Many organizations do not receive many applications. Students should apply for as many relevant scholarships that they find.
- Aim high, but don’t ignore “smaller” scholarships – even $100 or $250 can help keep expenses and borrowing down.
- Be careful of scams. Never pay a fee when completing a scholarship application. Legitimate organizations typically do not charge a fee.
