SCHOLARSHIP SEARCHES PAY OFF!

Scholarships are one of the most effective ways to reduce student debt, in addition to grants. College tuition can be expensive, and students can face multiple years of tuition bills. To minimize student debt, it is important to conduct scholarship searches every year, not just during your senior year of high school.

Don't forget - Scholarships do not require any repayment of funds.

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!

SCHOLARSHIP FAQ

Still have questions? Here are some of our most asked questions about scholarships.

Can high school seniors receive scholarships?
Most college scholarships are available to high school seniors. The requirements for eligibility are stated in the application. It's best to start searching for scholarships early. Start your search at rischolarships.org.
Does having good grades matter when applying for scholarships?

Grades are essential for some scholarships, but not all. Scholarships may also be awarded based on students' extracurricular activities, interests, hobbies, and sports.

How do you find scholarships?

There are so many opportunities for scholarship success, but it takes a bit of effort to uncover them. Start by contacting your high school counselor and requesting a list of local scholarships. You can also explore scholarship programs offered by your parents' or guardians' workplace. Be sure to start your search before the last minute. Apply for any scholarship that suits your eligibility, no matter the size. The future is bright, and we're here to help you shine!

Is it worthwhile to apply for smaller scholarship awards?

Local scholarships are a fantastic way to fund your college education. Believe it or not, you have a better chance of winning a local scholarship than a national one with thousands of applicants. That's because there is typically less competition, as fewer students are eligible to win. Apply to as many opportunities as possible and take advantage of them. The more scholarships you apply for, the higher your chances of receiving money for college! Take advantage of this great chance to invest in your future. Go to rischolarships.org!

Should the instructions given in the application be followed?

Yes! You should complete all the required fields and easy questions while applying for scholarships. Also, watch for specific instructions such as word count, topic, documents, and due dates. These details could be the deciding factor for your application's acceptance or rejection. Submitting your scholarship applications before the deadline is highly recommended to avoid any last-minute glitches.
