Scholarships-Where are they?

Asking your kid to apply for scholarships is a tall order. First, they have to find them. And, since they are more focused on admission than tuition and there is no single place to go to find scholarships, they often give up. "My parents have it handled" (tuition) is what many students tell me when I ask if they want to apply for scholarships.
 
To get high school students to apply for scholarships, you have to be a partner. That means helping them find scholarships. You can enlist other friends and family members in your search to lighten the load. Here are places to look:
 
  • get access to the list available at your kid's high school
  • make a list of your community connections that are possible resources for scholarships such as your employer, associations, military, bank and credit union and check their websites for scholarships
  • check the scholarship set up at each college to which your kid will apply, some expect kids to apply for scholarships before they know they've been accepted
  • go online and do scholarship searches (there are dozens of sites)
