Scholarship Mom Tip #10: Search Smart
Instead of searching for “scholarships,” be specific and use the student’s possible major and the current year.
Ex: “engineering scholarships 2013.”
Take advantage of Google search tools and further narrow down your results by choosing the “past year” option. This eliminates most old scholarships that may be discontinued and, instead, brings up current scholarship applications and guidelines. You can try similar techniques using Bing or Yahoo for scholarship searches.
