The Scholarship Connection is not an appropriate resource for finding funding possibilities for prospective and entering freshman. We serve as a resource for current college undergraduates. It is recommended that you consult with your high school career center or counselors in finding scholarships. You may also wish to visit your school or local libraries.
The web is a great resource in finding scholarships for college. The links below contain both some information on databases in which you can search for scholarships and view some specific scholarships opportunities.
