March 2017 Scholarships
There are 3 sources to research and locate scholarships:
- Local Scholarships – I publish those that come to CHS with updates about every 2 weeks. You can also find them on our website. Other examples for you to research are churches, parents’ employment, civic organizations, etc.
- College Scholarships – can be found on each college’s website and are specific to each school. This takes research and time to do these applications but are required at some colleges to be eligible for their scholarships.
- National Scholarships – These search engines ask you to fill out a profile and match scholarships to your particular profile. The search engines that I trust are:
