Identifying scholarship funds can be challenging, but there are opportunities for upper-class students.  Please consider the following when applying for scholarships:

  • Do I meet the application requirements?  Your GPA, number of credits earned, and the college where you are enrolled can each be restrictions on who can apply.
  • How likely am I to qualify for this scholarship and how much effort is required to apply?  Consider the amount of time and effort that you will put in to applying for a scholarship.  Be willing to invest more time in applying to scholarships that offer greater dollar amounts or that you are most likely to be awarded.
