There are a lot of potential scholarships out there for you to apply. Don't leave any stones unturned when looking for FREE money. All of the hard work will be worth it when your tuition is paid by scholarship money.
It's important to remember that applying for scholarships is a numbers game. The more you apply to, the better your chances of winning. Unfortunately, it's difficult at times to win a scholarship, and not everyone is guaranteed to win one.

More than likely, this is information you discovered at the very beginning of the application process. But believe it or not, some scholarships don’t broadcast how much their worth on their website, so if you do end up earning the scholarship, it’s best to call the organization directly to inquire about the full amount of the scholarship.
Again, some scholarships will display this information from the get-go. Providers might have a very specific vision for who can earn the scholarship and what they can use it for. Most will cite tuition as their required use, but others might allow students to use it for room and board, books, living expenses, or something related. If the scholarship’s website doesn’t specify, ask.
Does it go into effect your freshman year? Next fall? Immediately? It’s good to know when you can access the funds you’ve earned.
