Scholarships

Here are some helpful tips to guide you on your search:

1. Do not let small award amounts discourage you. Apply to as many scholarships as you think you are qualified for.

2. Beware of any scholarship that:

  • Asks for a social security number

  • Guarantees an award

  • Charges an application fee

These are usually hoaxes of one sort or another. If you are unsure, ask me!
