Need help finding Scholarships???
You can register for free at the following scholarship search websites:
Below are several links to lists of scholarships that have been compiled by various local schools and organizations.
If a list was not compiled by your high school, then that doesn't mean these scholarships aren't for you - look at it - we guarantee there will be many scholarships listed that you can apply for.
Also, take note that the deadlines for many of these scholarships were last year. You can assume that this year's deadline for the same scholarships will be within one or two days of last year's deadline.
Finally, if a scholarship description says "see ______ in the counseling/career office" and that person is not from your school, ask the UB Advisor to assist you in obtaining the scholarship application or look for it online.
