Scholarships and grants are equivalent to FREE MONEY. Trust me when I say you NEED to fill out scholarships ASAP! Some require essays, some require a simple signature, and some require creative entries! It’s like entering a Sweepstakes (hence the title), you’re chosen at random (most of the time). Here are a couple of annual scholarships to get you started:
HOPE Texas Scholarship $1,300
1,000 Dreams Scholarship $1,000
ABA Diversity Scholarship $2,500
ACS Scholars Program $5,000
These scholarships were found here. At this site, you can find other scholarships to apply for that will help you cover your tuition. Other websites I found useful were Cappex, Fin Aid, and College Board. Good luck on your search!
If you feel overwhelmed, just take one step at a time. It may seem a bit scary but once I started, I was on a roll. It’s going to be time-consuming but it’s money that will burn your college tuition, if you don’t apply for scholarships, you’re bound for debt. I mean, we all are, but some less than others (“some” being the ones who applied for scholarships)!
