How to get a scholarship?
What do colleges find appealing enough to give a student a scholarship? Thanks 🙂

Colleges award scholarships to students based on merit (grades, class rank, test scores), need (low-income), athletics, art & music, first generation college students, minority (black, hispanic) and even for specific majors. Don’t limit yourself to institutional aid. Register for a free account with and and start applying to private scholarships, as well. Many programs are simply based on an essay submission and do not take grades or financial need in to consideration.
