Finally, don’t forget to search locally for scholarship opportunities. Your school counselors are an excellent resource, as they work with students year after year to find college funding. You can even ask around at a community center or Rotary Club about college funding. Many local scholarships only award $1,000 or less, but the pool of applicants is smaller than for many national awards. Even small scholarships will help pay your living costs and reduce the amount you take out in student loans.
