College scholarships are offered by a variety of civic organizations, charities and businesses and are a great way to save money on a college education. In addition to private scholarships, most colleges and universities also have scholarship endowments that award money to students each year. The best thing about college scholarships is the money is a gift to the student and need not be repaid. Scholarships fall into two basic categories; academic and nonacademic. Academic scholarships are based on grades and academic achievement alone. Qualifications to apply are usually a certain grade point average or standardized test score. Sometimes an essay or test will be required as part of the application process. Some private organizations may offer academic scholarships, but most are awarded through a college or university. Often an applicant can fill out one application and be considered for a number of academic scholarships administered by the school. Nonacademic scholarships are awarded based on a number of factors. Many times, financial need is a consideration. Some organizations offer scholarships to a limited pool of applicants such as certain minority groups, or students who are enrolled in a specific course of study. Religious denominations sometimes make scholarships available to their members. Other scholarships are available to people who reside in a specific community or who work for a specific employer or industry. There are scholarships that honor those who have achieved a special award, such as Eagle Scout, and those who have served in the armed forces. Athletic scholarships are awarded by colleges and universities to students who excel at a particular sport. One good source for information about college scholarships is a high school guidance counselor. Most colleges and universities also have an employee or department to contact regarding scholarship information. Scholarship lists and requirements can also be found on numerous internet sites and in printed books available at bookstores and libraries.

Finally, make sure to fill out the FAFSA and to check with the financial aid office at your school as they may have options that are only available to that school's students.
Several websites offer lists of school grants for students. Examples include College Scholarships and Grants Alert. They can also be found through the U.S. Department of Education's website.
Unless a student comes from an independently wealthy family, applying for college scholarships is usually necessary in order to be able to afford not only tuition fees but also such incidentals as books and supplies while pursuing a degree. There are several ways to search for the right college scholarships in order to obtain financial aid to cover the cost of attending a college, university, community college or trade/technical school. Students who are still in high school should talk to their guidance counselor for recommendations on the best places to apply for college scholarships based on their career interests and goals. Found out if any unions or fraternal organizations that family members or friends belong to offer college scholarships such as the Rotary Club or Lions International. Some religious organizations such as synagogues and churches offer college scholarships to their members and although these may be rather modest, they can often be applied to such incidental expenses as textbooks, which can often run into the hundreds of dollars each semester. Search the Internet for free scholarship services, websites that allow you to explore just what college scholarships are available for the coming school year, with information about requirements and that all important requirement, the deadline date for application. Look up College Scholarships, College Financial Aid or College Financial Aid on Internet search engines. But be careful not to release confidential information to any website that has not been verified and do not pay for scholarship information. There is enough free information available about financial aid resources that students shouldn’t waste their money paying for supposed lists. When a student applies to a particular college or university, ask the admissions officers what sort of college scholarships are made available to students. Some scholarships go unawarded because they have specific requirements that might just be well suited to your individual situation and goals. Students should apply for several college scholarships and not just the one that is most appealing or offers the largest award, recognizing that competition for this kind of financial assistance is increasing every year. Sometimes several college scholarships can be accepted and the total amount combined toward the fees owed for the college year or semester. College scholarship applications should be filled out carefully and completely in order to be considered. And be aware of the deadline by which the application must reach the scholarship office in order to be considered for a financial award. A late postmark just may mean lost money.
