Where can you find scholarships online?

Finding scholarships is a very important process that can greatly impact the amount of money you pay for school. One of the best places to find scholarships now is online. The following will further inform you how to do so.

Applying for scholarships online is very similar to applying to college, so the more you do it the more you will get the hang of it and the quicker the process will go. If and when you are given the scholarship(s), the time you have put in will be well worth it.

The first time you apply for aid, you should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which is also known as FAFSA.  The U.S. Department of Education provides this free form and helps determine what government-sponsored loans and grants you are entitled to. The FAFSA form requires a lot of information such as your W2 and your Expected Family Contribution. Once you have figured out this information it is very important that you keep in on hand for the other forms you will fill out. They do not all require this information but having it on hand will not hurt and save you time should it be needed.

There are online search databases for scholarships, but many do not have a large selection. Finding one that has a broad database is important so you do not waste too much time.
The USDE Scholarship Locator can be found on the Department of Education’s website. The scholarships found on the site are sure to be legitimate, whereas other sites might not be as credible.

Sallie Mae’s College Answer has over 60,000 options ranging from scholarships to tuition waivers. This would be a great place to search and see what is available that works for you.
High school students should start early looking for scholarships and learning how to fill them out. The sooner students begin their search the more money they will be able to find. This is an extremely important step in the college process and can make a big difference in the amount of money you will need to take out on loan. A great idea is to start local when looking for scholarships. If you apply for scholarships in your area there will be less competition and you will be more likely to see some money.
