We all know how difficult it can be for students to research scholarships for their schooling, but we also know that there are hundreds of scholarships that go unclaimed every year! Part of this is because students don't know where to look for them. Other factors are a lack of available information from their schools, due to overworked teachers and counselors, or a lack of encouragement from their parents.

If you know young people who are interested in applying for college but don't know where to look for scholarships, please send them this list of websites to look through for scholarships!
