Here are some scholarship search resources that may yield some results for you. Be sure to read up on how to avoid scams. My best advice on scholarships is to apply early and look beyond the large (and highly competitive) scholarships and consider the smaller, niche scholarships.
Also, be sure to let the college counseling office know well in advance of any deadlines about what needs to be mailed from school (for example: letters of recommendation, test scores, transcript, etc.). Good luck!
Northwood boarding students are also advised to contact the school counselor at their hometown high school to determine which scholarships are available to students in their hometowns.
These are the most popular scholarship resources:
- Avoiding and protecting yourself from Scholarship Scams
- Scholarship resources from Federal Student Aid
- College Board’s Scholarship Search Service
- Going Merry is a new program that calls itself a Common App for scholarships. As of August 15, it’s too new to review, but it sounds very promising.
- Scholarship Search on Family Connection/Naviance (log in required)
- Raise.me (micro scholarships)
Northwood’s college counselors have also heard good things about these scholarship resources:
- College Greenlight
- National Health Service Corps (for Health Services related scholarships)
- Weird Scholarships Guide
