The first step in receiving scholarship money from the individual schools is submitting their scholarship application and filing the FAFSA. Most schools have their scholarship money tied to the information they receive from the FAFSA. So, even if you think you will not receive additional aid from the FAFSA it is important to fill one out for scholarship possibilities.
One of the best sources of scholarship and financial aid information is the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office at the college to which you are applying.
Be sure to visit each college’s website and follow that individual school’s instructions regarding required forms and deadlines.
Most colleges DO have scholarships. Be sure to visit the colleges’ websites, go to their scholarships and/or financial aid page, and determine eligibility requirements, deadlines and application procedures. This is the most important thing that you can do in researching scholarships.
DON’T DELAY, as deadlines for scholarships are sometimes earlier than the admission application deadlines.
Remember that teachers and counselors will need two weeks' notice when requesting transcripts and recommendations for scholarship and college applications.
