Are you having trouble finding scholarships? There are many wonderful websites available for parents and their students who are trying to compile a scholarship list.
Below are what I consider to be the best scholarship websites. Many of these are scholarship matching sites, meaning they will email students when a scholarship is found for them to consider applying for.
Before signing up, however, I highly suggest doing the following:
1. Set up a new, smart email to be used only for scholarship and college correspondence. For example, email@example.com. If the preferred email is already taken, simply add a number or other symbol, such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
2. Fill out student profiles 100%, leaving no blank spaces or unchecked boxes.
3. List all possible majors for more scholarship matches. If a student is unsure of what they would like to major in, they need to check the boxes for everything that interests them.
4. Update information yearly or as it changes, as different scholarships are offered for different levels of students. Also, more matches may occur as students join clubs, volunteer, learn new skills, and take part in different activities.
