After that, if you’re the old-fashioned type, you can move on to your local library or bookstore to check the scholarship “yellow pages.” At these locations, you will be able to find massive volumes like this one that contain a vast array of available scholarships.
These compilations are published annually and contain details about eligibility and how to obtain further information. The downside to these books is that they only serve as an initial step. They can’t provide you with an actual application.

Back to Monica——-> As some of you know, I AM a fan of the big scholarship searching books, mostly for their “take and use” functionality.
I found tons of scholarships for my son in my car while waiting for my kids to finish practices, while attending track meets, and all the other occasions that we moms sit and wait. I used this time wisely and found scholarships in those books that never came up on scholarship sites!
