									Below is a sampling of scholarship and financial aid websites that may be helpful to you. Registering on scholarship websites will allow you to receive scholarship information via email. Go ahead and look at the financial aid WebPages for colleges to which you know you will be applying. Create a list of merit based scholarships that are college specific and require a separate application! Be sure to check the deadline dates, as some scholarships are due before you plan to submit your application. I have added a few new links since last year, so be sure to check those out too.
