Financing a college education is a difficult matter, especially with the rising costs of post-secondary education. Here are the few strategies to obtain more scholarship money.
- Search early. The peak time to start applying for scholarships is the summer after your junior year in high school. Many scholarships need a year to process applications. By the time they do, you will be on your way to your first year in college.
- Get help from your high school. Your guidance counselor will have a list of scholarships you can apply for. You can also look into local clubs and organizations.
- Research on established websites. College Board and Scholarship.com provide valuable and updated information and services for college-bound students and parents.
