There are scholarships of all different kinds available to students. Here, we will provide information on a number of local scholarships. If you are interested in searching for scholarships on a larger scale, consider using websites such as Big Future by the College Board, Cappex,, or Fastweb. There are a large number of additional scholarship search websites. It is also a good idea to look for scholarships directly on the website of the college or university you plan to attend. As a general rule, you should never pay to apply for a scholarship.
