3 Tips for Earning College Scholarships
Are you planning on college and need scholarships to make that happen? We have some good news for you! There are thousands of great scholarships out there, and all you need to do is apply.
Here are three simple tips to get you started in your scholarship search to help you lower your college costs…
1. Apply for local scholarships: diocesan or parish scholarships such as Council of Catholic Women and Knights of Columbus, parent’s place of employment, Lions Club, Rotary Club, local credit unions, etc.
Here are just a few to start with:
2. Treat applying for scholarships like a part-time job: allocate a certain amount of time each week to research scholarship opportunities and apply for as many as you can. The earlier you start this process the better!
3. Inquire with the colleges regarding their financial aid options often and up until it is time for your first semester to begin: many colleges will offer institutional aid or scholarships. So, keep inquiring about any additional financial aid you may receive up until it is time for the semester to begin.
