Students and families who are looking for ways to pay for postsecondary education should make scholarships a significant part of their plan.
Scholarships are money for school that doesn’t need to be repaid, and they are distributed to students for excellence in academics, skill in sports, financial need, or even the desire to pursue a certain career path. There really is one, or more, out there for everyone.
Begin searching at least a year before you plan on starting school. To find scholarships, ask your high school counselor, the financial aid staff at the postsecondary school you want to attend or check out Scholly, our scholarship search tool!
