One of the biggest concerns, at least for myself, when it comes to colleges and what may have the biggest influence on which school I pick, is how much money it will cost me to go there.
Considering how much the schools I have picked cost, applying for scholarships is going to be a big part of my college experience. By applying to hopefully earn a numerous amount of scholarships, I will be able to get some aid that isn’t from the schools and in turn cut my costs. I also hope to receive scholarships from the schools I apply to so that my costs will be cut even further.
Many schools consider students for their significant scholarships at the time when they review your application. Be sure to double check with the college and universities to which you plan on applying because some may require essays or extra applications for some of their scholarships.
Another great way to get scholarships is to look online. There are many sites that offer scholarships and allow you to apply to for them online. Such sites include Cappex.com and FastWeb.com. Setting up an account on these sites is quick and easy and definitely worth the time. They are a great way to find scholarships and make the application process for these scholarships as easy as the click of a mouse!
So be sure to take advantage of such websites! If you are curious as to if there are any other sites, ask your counselor or college adviser and I’m sure they could point you in the right direction! You can also visit the many scholarship search service reviews here at EDUInReview.com.
