Scholarships And Grants For High School Seniors

Myrtle Said:

what the best website for researching scholarships and grants for current high school seniors?

We Answered:

Here are some websites for you to try:

http://www.studentawards.com/

http://scholarships.fatomei.com/college.…

Also, look on your college website for local scholarships or grants in your field of study. The sooner you apply, the greater your chances of getting a scholarship or grant. Don't forget the Federal government for PELL grants based upon your financial needs. They don't have to be repaid. Good Luck.

Ricky Said:

Are there any scholarships available for students who did not go straight from High School to the college?

We Answered:

there sure are.... you can go back to college any time you want. try the gov grants first, then private scholarships.

i dont know your details, so i will just post all that i have. i know its a lot, but take your time and pick through them all.

its worth it.
--------------------
There are government loans & grants, and then there are private loans & scholarships.

try to aim for grants/scholarships more... they are not to be paid back. its confusing sometimes, but just keep applying. Scholarships usually have a 1 or 2 page application, and require an essay. Take your time with the essay, so yours stands out.

every big (and small) company you see (manufacturer, orgs, corps and groups also) all have grants and scholarships they hand out like candy. Walmart, Kmart, Target, Coke, computer companies etc etc etc

here are some links with a HUGE list of what is available. some you will need to copy and paste into a new window. also, fastweb (take the time to fill it in) will search databases and get back to you with a list of scholarships you qualify for.

Also contact all mens, womens associations in your state, they almost always have grants & scholarships. What ever field you are going into, contact the orgs, associations etc for them; Also check with professional organizations related to your career interests, such as the American Bar Association or the American Medical Association. they also always have scholarships. Research and dig, call then write. Its all worth it.

OVER apply; it doesnt hurt to have too many, and the extra funds can help with housing.

Irma Said:

i am going to become a senior in high school and im looking for grants/scholarships..is scholarship.com a safe?

We Answered:

collegefinder.yoll.net - try this site. It has info about different US scholarships for college students and their grades requirements.

Margaret Said:

Anyone know of any helpful grants and scholarships that a high school senior can apply for?

We Answered:

The best place to start is your h.s. college or guidance counselor. They get all this info first.

Freddie Said:

Any good scholarships available for a CA public high school senior with an over 4.0 weighted GPA?

We Answered:

The best approach is using different approaches to find a scholarship. However, it can be pretty competitive in getting one unfortunately, but there are many scholarships for graduating seniors from high school. All the sources that I mention are free to locate a scholarship and free to apply for consideration.

First, the high school guidance office can provide a list of local scholarships to apply for consideration to current high school students. Also, have your high school guidance counselor to check into any state programs for students with a certain GPA or SAT/ACT test scores.

Second, the college's financial aid office and website has a list of private scholarships offered from outside organizations and companies. Sometimes a college major's website will list scholarships, too.

Third, the public library has a book listing scholarships with some not even listed on the web.

Finally, I recommend joining several free membership scholarship search websites. There are scholarships for a variety of things including ethnicity, clubs, hobbies, and even wearing duct tape to the high school prom. Most are updated on a regular basis. Most offer a customized search based on information entered onto a form on the website.

Good luck!
