Scholarship Tips:

Paying for college can be stressful!  Many students get help through federal grants and loans offered through the Financial Aid office, but there are multiple "outside scholarship" sources as well.  Some sources include churches, educational foundations, Vocational Rehbilitation programs, civic organizations and others outside of the college. 

Set up a separate email account when applying for outside scholarships.  Most scholarship sites send daily emails that can junk up your school email.  Once you are done applying for scholarships you can abandon the email address.

Be wary of companies/websites that charge you to apply.

Watch deadlines closely and get applications in early.

Attach all necessary documents with application.
