Scholarships in general require a great deal of work on your part. It is, in many ways, a seek, find, and work effort. Below are several places to go to begin that process:
- Fastweb.com is a major source of scholarships, but it will overload your email and require time to weed through. If you’d like to sign up for this one, I think that’s a good idea, you’ll also want to set up a separate email account so that you can better manage that task on your own time without being bombarded with their daily mail.
- Going Merry is a new version for scholarship searches that has become widely popular. You can create a profile, but also store your information, most-commonly answered essay questions, etc., and apply for things at this one-stop shop.
- Okcollegestart.org is a wonderful resource for scholarships, particularly in Oklahoma. If you go to their website, click on financial aid, and then set up a profile. That will match your specifics to any available scholarships.
- Some things still come through the counseling office, and I will post any and all that do below:
