March 29, 2010 By: Category: Aid for College, Application tips, Finding a scholarship, Nontraditional scholarships, Scholarships

You don’t have to be the eighth athletic wonder of the world or a clinically proven genius to get a college scholarship. You just have to be resourceful.

There are plenty of ways to get a college scholarship–the trick is just to actively seek them out. If you do the work to find the scholarship, you’ve done the hardest part. Here are some places to start your college scholarship search:

  • College or University Websites–your school will offer scholarships for students, just look around on their web page
  • Scholarship Books–here’s a site listing the best ones:  Scholarship books
  • High School Counselor or Advisor Office–If you have one, walk into their office, ask them about opportunities
  • Employer–The company that employs you may offer college scholarships, this site provides a list of corporations that provide college scholarships, including Wal-Mart and Coca-Cola
  • Local Community or Community Service–There are many community services scholarships available, and some that may be available through your community church, for example
  • Family Affiliations–Use your family, ask around; often times, someone in your family will know someone who has set up a scholarship in the memory of a loved one or have access to information about a scholarship their company or employer might offer
  • myUsearch: myUsearch.com directs at least 10% of its profits to scholarships for students.
  • Online Scholarship Databases–check these out:
  1. http://www.collegescholarships.org/
  2. http://www.scholarships.com/
  3. http://www.studentscholarshipsearch.com/
  4. International scholarships

Don’t be afraid to apply for scholarships that you think you may not be qualified or eligible for. It is true that some scholarships are limited to a certain demographic, but you can’t lose anything by applying, even if you are not sure you meet all the criteria. Make sure to check deadlines and complete applications promptly. People, colleges, and companies want to help you go to college, so stop eating cheese out of a can and hoping the scholarship fairy will visit you or that colleges will start awarding money for skills demonstrated in Modern Warfare 2. Start fillin’ out them applications, fool!
