What exactly is a scholarship? How can I get one? Scholarships come from many different sources and are awarded for various reasons. The more you educate yourself about the scholarship process, the better your chances will be to receive one.
All scholarship applications should be started at least three weeks before they are due. Many will require letters of recommendation and essays. Applying for scholarships is a tough job, which requires good organizational and time management skills. Click here for information on Scholarship Tips & Tools.
