scholarships are a source of free money that students can use to help pay for college so obviously this is a great thing and students can start looking for scholarships throughout their high school career most scholarships are available for students when they become seniors in high school and then scholarships are available to students when they're in college as well so scholarships are something that you should constantly be on the lookout for and something that you will need to apply to it might include filling out forms it might mean writing essays it might mean getting recommendation letters or submitting transcripts some of them are online some of them are paper applications your school might actually announce different scholarships through their newsletter or on their website and so it's something that you might need to be on the lookout for you might be able to you might have to pursue on your own I literally applied to every single scholarship I could ever think of I googled every Armenian scholarship because I'm an Armenian descent but I'm also from Lebanon so I meet I googled Lebanese scholarships and the more I realized the more specific you get on the scholarships and the more likely you are to get it because not everyone applies to those scholarships and I was really fortunate enough that I almost received every single scholarship I apply to because they were so specific to who I was where I was from and what I was going to be pursuing and that saved me there's a number of scholarships out there and sometimes it can be hard to figure out which ones you should apply to I I always encourage my students to apply to the local scholarships so you should apply to the local scholarships those are the ones that might be limited to students in your school district or to a certain number of high schools or a certain region and so you you will have fewer students competing for those scholarships so you might have a better shot of getting some of those scholarships another great opportunity might be essay contests for scholarship dollars they typically again require you to write some form of an essay maybe anywhere from a page to five pages maybe also submit teacher recommendations at your SAT scores even your transcripts so that extra Mountain works sometimes deter students from doing that so if you're willing to put in that extra work you'd be surprised to see how many extra you know scholarship dollars you may be able to get some students go into the scholarship process thinking that scholarships are only for the students with the highest GPA or the highest scores and that's absolutely not true scholarships are for everyone everyone who are who's willing to put in the work in order to apply for those scholarships
