1. Scholarships with a (*) next to them are my highly favored.

2. Be patient, earning FREE money is a marathon, not a sprint! It will take time and research.

3. Check out the merit and need based scholarships on your college of choice financial aid website. Simply type the word "scholarships" in their search box or call the Office of Financial Aid.

4. Read carefully, make sure you are eligible for the scholarship. You may have already missed some of the deadlines for scholarships on this site.

5. Some scholarships on this site may not be open/available just yet.

6. Deadlines are approaching, act fast!
