There are numerous college scholarships available and an almost inexhaustible number of websites and printed materials on available funds and tips to apply. One of your best resources are the counselors in your child’s school. Make an appointment with your child’s counselor to find out not only the “big” scholarships that may be available but the small ones that can help with a variety of expenses. Another good source is the school your child is interested in attending. Universities often have scholarships that are only available to their students.
Apply for all that you can. There are hundreds of scholarships that are not awarded each year.
