Student Scholarship Resources:
1. Look local first. There are fewer students going out for these scholarships, increasing your chance of receiving one. These are highlighted in yellow.(Examples of local: banks, credit unions, your parents place of work, religious organizations, Elks and other local organizations)2. Then look on the college/institution websites. They will have their own set of scholarships.3. If you have time, apply to scholarships open to all students nationally.
