A few tips to share with students preparing their scholarship search:
- You can't earn a scholarship if you don't apply! There are scholarship opportunities available for students based on academic or athletic achievement, as well as special activities and volunteer work. Common App makes it easy for students to apply for scholarship opportunities - students can send already-entered application data to scholarship providers through the Scholar Snapp integration. Students can use Scholar Snapp free of charge!
- Local, regional, and national organizations provide a diverse array of scholarship opportunities to students with a wide range of experience.
- While there are many great organizations awarding legitimate scholarships to students, there are also many scams out there. For tips on avoiding scams and identifying real scholarships, visit the Office of Federal Student Aid.
