If you play sports that is another way to get a scholarship. Also, check you local book store. There are many books with lists of scholarships that are out there for anyone. However, you may need to write an essay.

If you have some idea what schools you may be applying to, visit their websites and look on their financial aid page for info on scholarships they offer.

Visit Fastweb.com and create an account now. Based on your information they list hundreds of scholarships that match your grade, gap, background, interests, etc. It's a great place to start.

Keep getting good grades.

Get involved in clubs, community organizations, sports, or find a job. Many organizations have scholarships they offer and colleges love to see students who are involved in work, sports or clubs. This will help you stand out when applying for financial aid.

It is shocking how very little students actually research information about grants and scholarships and then complain when they have to fund thier education out of thier own pockets. You can really see how powerful writing is. By just a simple writing, it can able you to get scholarship and money. This is applicable for those students who barely afford the tuition fee of a certain school. It would be an advantage if you write well.

A scholarship application often contains the sponsor's scholarship selection criteria, but dig deeper. Research the scholarship sponsor on the web. Look for the organization's mission statement, which you'll often find in the "About Us" section of its website.
