The search for scholarships is like finding specifically-sized needles in various haystacks. It’s a huge task, made even more problematic by the sheer number of resources available.

Not to continue to add to the fray, but we’re hoping to use this area as a constantly-refreshed “scholarship clearing house,” highlighting scholarship information as we find it. We’ll be updating it regularly, and rolling the information as we go forward.

Get your plan together, and stay organized when applying for scholarships. Also, read up on a couple of our friends and partners who’ve done the “game” well, and succeeded.

Good luck!
