Just a few reminders.
  • Scholarships are sponsored by a range of companies, organizations and individuals that set the eligibility criteria for their scholarships so it can vary greatly.
  • These sponsors also set their own application window.  They decide when to begin advertising their scholarship and when to set the deadline. 
  • So what is posted or available to search can vary from day to day.
  • This means searching for scholarships is an ongoing process that can and should continue into college.
Here are a few Search Engines which include state and national scholarship opportunities. These engines request you to complete information about yourself and then match you up with scholarships of which you meet the criteria.
Students can use Scholar Snapp to share their information (such as name, address, email address, grades in classes and essay answers) to apply for many different scholarships.  The Scholar Snapp solution guides you through the application process and saves a lot of time in researching and applying to scholarships.

Also students can create a profile on to earn microscholarhips for activities or achivements while in high school
