Now is the time to look for scholarships. College scholarships come from three sources:
- Colleges you applied to
- Scholarships from your community
- National or larger regional organizations
At your College
Most scholarships come from the school you have applied to. See the GuidedPath Edge scholarship tab – it will list any academic scholarship that is offered to 8 or more students.
Increase your chances for scholarships by starting your scholarship search locally. Many local scholarships are looking for applicants! Check:
- with counseling office
- school parent organization (PTA, Booster clubs, etc.)
- with local library
- sign up for online bulletin with scholarships through your school
Use your residence as a means to get more money for college. Many states offer scholarships to top students. Check to see what is offered through your state. Check deadlines for any state scholarships you qualify for.
There are dozens of national scholarship search engines available. Many are nothing more than a way to market credit cards or other products to you. Here are our recommended scholarship search sources.
Use Edge tasks to stay on top of deadlines for your regional and local scholarships. Add your college scholarship deadlines to your application plan.
Add details on the college scholarship to App Notes: To find the Application Notes, go to the College Lists and then select the tab labeled Summary just under the college lists and update the column on the very right.
