How to Start a Scholarship Search

Years ago, while presenting student success workshops in high schools, conversations with students would turn to the rising cost of college. Students didn’t want to take on enormous student loan debt. Their words resonated with me.  I was the first person in my family to go to college and although I won some scholarships, it wasn’t enough. I had to also sign my name to student loans. I was inspired by those many conversations with students to research and find ways to reduce the cost of college. That research led me to these 3 easy steps to starting a scholarship search.
