Scholarships? - September 18th 2009, 01:10 AM

I was told once that I have to be careful looking on the web for scholarships and I don't know how to tell if a website is legit or not.

The only website I know of suggested from a previous college was fastweb.com but they never really have anything for me.

I really want to start looking for scholarships but does anybody have any suggestions?

The safest thing to do would be to go to the college's website that you are interested in and go to their scholarship page. They will either list the scholarships and the requirements they have for applying, or they will have a generic form to fill out that is an application for all scholarships.

Since you're in the US, I'm not sure how this works there or if it even occurs. When you're in high-school, you may get a book that contains the grade requirements to get into certain programs of a university or college in your province or state or country. Within this book is some information regarding what is required for a certain scholarship.

If you don't have the book or if it's not offered in the US, then there's few websites I'd trust. The ones that I would trust would be the actual website of the university or college. You can also speak to a undergraduate adviser about your eligibility for a scholarship. I wouldn't put much trust in websites that aren't sponsored or made by the university or college.

In Canada, there's Maclaine's (sp?) magazine and it does contain information for Canadian colleges and universities around the country. I'm sure there's an American equivalent for this, which you can buy and have in hard-copy or you can access it online, at least for Maclaine's (sp?).

Each college and university has somewhere on campus an office dedicated to scholarships, bursaries and so forth. It may be somewhat tucked away so you may have to go on a scavenger hunt to find it in-person, however, they would probably be able to provide you with the proper documentation to apply for a scholarship and with the proper information as to what is needed. Or, you can save the effort of the scavenger hunt and phone them or e-mail them, however, I'd go for either phone or in-person because you can ask your questions and get immediate answers, rather than waiting for e-mail responses.

For myself, when I applied straight from high-school to university, I got offered scholarships, however, once in university or college, then you usually have to apply for them.
