When you are searching for scholarships think of these 6 things to help you!

Look for Scholarships Where You…

GO TO SCHOOL – Visit the School Counseling Department, the school’s website and newsletter for scholarships.

WORK – Most companies have scholarships for their employers or children of their employers. For an example, Wal-Mart, Target and McDonalds all have scholarships. Call the Human Resources office of where you or your parents work and ask.

PLAY/HAVE FUN– Search to see if there are any scholarships out there for things you like to do. For an example, if you play a sport, like to build things, like to paint or draw or ride horses you may have some luck finding a scholarship.

WORSHIP – Check your place of worship for scholarships and also search for scholarships that represent your choice of worship.

BANK– Talk to a representative at your or your parents’ bank. Ask the banker about scholarships for account holders.

COME FROM– Search for scholarships that represent who you are and where you come from. For an example, if you are a twin or if you are of Irish descent, use search engines to locate scholarships.

ALWAYS REMEMBER…YOU SHOULD NEVER PAY MONEY IN ORDER TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP. IF A SCHOLARSHIP ASK FOR MONEY, IT IS A SCAM.
