Timing your search

The earlier you can start your scholarship search, the better. You will need to dedicate time to fill out online forms, and consult with your school counselor if you are in high school. Most scholarships have deadlines, and many require you to write short or long essays to qualify. It all depends on the scholarship.

Many scholarships are now opening up to nontraditional students. Some schools are offering scholarships just for older students too.


You will want to spend the time necessary to really look deeply into many scholarships to find out which ones to apply for. Ideally, you will want to start searching for scholarships at least a year before you plan to go to college.



Grants are like scholarships, but can be government-sponsored or be offered only one time. Corporations or nonprofit groups apply for grants as well as students in college.

They can be harder to locate and apply for. If you are a non-traditional student or have special projects you wish to pursue in college, a grant can be the way to go for you.

I have heard of graduate students and professors applying for grants for special research projects. Teachers, private companies and individuals may also apply for grants. There are some grants listed on the bottom part of this web page, in the links section.

Question: How many scholarships should you apply for?

Apply for as many scholarships as you think you qualify for. Of course, pick the ones that offer the most money that you don't have to pay back. You can always turn one scholarship down if you get two and they are for different areas or schools.

Question: What else should you do?

Contact the Financial Aid office of the school you want to attend - either in person on online. They will be able to tell you about special scholarships or grants that are available only locally or just for that school.

Also, you can check for any "Work to School" or "School to Work" programs that your local Employment Office has in your city or town. Call them and ask about it. I did that, and found out that I qualifed for one! They helped me get training for an education job after that. It's definitely worth a phone call.

Good luck with your scholarship search!
