This is the time of year when college acceptance letters start rolling in and those ambitious students who applied early are finding out where they may spend their exciting college years.
As students think about the fun of college, parents typically think about the cost.
Once a student has been accepted into a college, they are then eligible to apply for scholarships specifically offered to incoming students of that college.
To find these scholarship opportunities, students and parents can visit the website of the college and find the scholarship page in the financial aid area of the site.
They need to carefully read the requirements for each scholarship and if they are eligible, apply for as many as possible. Also listed on most college websites are private scholarships that any student can apply for, even those not yet accepted to the school or if they do not plan on applying there.
College websites are a valuable resource for scholarships and should not be overlooked when students and parents are searching for funding before the student even starts college.
