How to Find More Local College Scholarships
Local scholarships have much less competition and students who concentrate on them have a much greater chance of winning more money for school.
Local scholarships are those offered to students in the area or state in which a student lives and many are just for students at a specific school. I’ve written a lot about local scholarships because they have much less competition than national scholarships and the chances of winning are greater for students who diligently apply for them.
Students get a list of local scholarships from the counselors at their high schools, so be on the lookout for this list, but don’t limit your scholarship search based solely on it.
There are many more local scholarships to be found!
Here are some helpful links to articles, my video on how to find more local college scholarships, and a podcast to listen to:
