One of the most important things you can do for yourself during your
lifetime is to go to college or university. Unfortunately, not everyone
is so lucky to be able to pursue the career they want the most. Even if
many students are brilliant they might not be able to attend college
because of how much it costs.

1. Scholarships

A scholarship is an award of access to an institution or a financial aid
award for an individual (a "scholar") for the purposes of furthering
their education. A scholarship may be awarded based on range of criteria,
which usually reflect the views or purposes of the donor or founder of
the award.

Another meaning of “scholarship“ is the pursuit of a research subject,
usually in arts or humanities (as opposed to science). In both scholarly
and scientific fields, the word “scholarship“ is used to mean deep
mastery of a research subject, often achieved through university studies.

Scholarships are a great way to finance your way through college or
university. There are many institutions that are willing to help students
finish their college. Actually, most college students get over a billion
dollars from scholarship grants each year.

2. How To Get Money

Begin your search for college and university scholarships before you are
even out of highschool. Some scholarships are given out only to
highschool students! Why not go ahead and ask your guidance counselor and
your schools financial aid officer about scholarships?

3. Keep Searching

Even after you get a scholarship, keep searching. Many scholarships get
renewed every year and you may qualify for more than one scholarship. The
majority of scholarship grants are dependent on the financial need and
academic accomplishment of a student, so be sure to participate in lots
of extracurricular activities.

4. Know All The Deadlines

Scholarships are often awarded on a specific date. For this reason, you
should know all the requirements for the scholarship and be able to meet
them well in advance of that date. A last minute application doesn't look
as good as one submitted well in advance.
