FINDING A SCHOOL & FINDING MONEY $$

If you haven’t already, now is the time to be selecting schools to which you would like to apply. Some more competitive schools will require earlier applications than others, for acceptance. Check the university or college’s Admissions page for detailed information regarding applications timelines and requirements.

Also, to assist with paying for any additional training, this is a good time to sign up for one of the national scholarship search engines, such as FastWeb, as well as keeping an eye on this page for information on other possible scholarships.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Check this homepage often to learn of new scholarships that come available. They will be posted here in the very near future. Also, for current and upcoming scholarships, follow the “Scholarships” tab or sidebar menu to see general scholarship timeframes, requirements, & links to additional information and/or online applications.

Websites which can help you in Finding money

Based on previous student recommendation, FASTWEB.COM is still the number one choice for finding scholarship, however, another site SCHOLARSHIPS.COM which has yet to be tested appears to have over 2.7 million scholarships and grants available, worth over $19 Billion!!  It is highly recommended that you register for this website, as well as FASTWEB.  Scholarships will be sent to your email based on a number of criteria you provide them (GPA, Intended Major, Religion, Race, etc etc).  The information you provide is voluntary, however, the more specific the information you provide, the more likely you are to receive scholarships that match you.

 College/University Financial Aid Webpage(s)

Another great resourse for securing scholarships is to visit the Financial Aid webpage for the colleges/universities to which you’ve applied.  You should always take advantage of the scholarships offered by the institutions you plan to attend.  Their “Financial Aid” website is generally very easy to find.  For example, if you want to find Boise State’s Financial Aid website… go to  “GOOGLE”, and type in: BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY FINANCIAL AID.  Once there, look for the word “SCHOLARSHIPS”.
