Students can consult many websites such as www.fastweb.com
to search for scholarships. Guidance departments can also be excellent sources as they receive notification from local sources. Local scholarships often can be easier to secure because there may be fewer competitors. Check with your college as well. Look for scholarships based on heritage, interests, and career interests. Remember that small scholarships add up and can be used to offset the costs of books, fees, and other incidental costs of college.
