Scholarship Mom Tip #6: Look Local
Find Even MORE Local Scholarships
Here is a great
tip for finding even MORE local scholarships. Starting around the
first of the year and continuing through spring, your local newspaper
will more than likely have a “Names In the News” section. Watch that section LIKE A HAWK!
In that section they will share
local SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS, the names of the scholarships, and the
companies/organizations that offer the scholarships. Write down this information and
apply for these scholarships NEXT year.
Scholarships like these are often NOT
published in scholarship books or included in online search
Remember, local scholarships have MUCH LESS competition and your
odds of winning are GREATER!
