  • Fill out your FAFSA to see if you qualify for a PELL GRANT

  • Find scholarships within your community: Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, The Boys and Girls Club, The Rotary Club, and more.

  • Talk to local businesses (in person). Some of them will have scholarships which they will use for advertising to promote themselves.
