The best way to find out about scholarships is to talk with others and do as much research as possible. Consult with high school administrators, faculty and guidance counselors, community leaders, organizations, churches, public libraries and relatives' places of employment. Several websites provide search capabilities at no charge. Beware of scholarship search programs that charge a fee, even if they have a "guarantee" policy.
