Outside Private Scholarships
Many clubs and organizations offer scholarships to college students. Students can obtain information about these awards from high school guidance counselor offices, libraries or from the Internet. The following free Internet scholarship search services should be considered: www.fastweb.com and www.cashe.com.
If a student or the student's family belong to any social, civic, ethnic, religious, professional or service groups, the student should contact these groups regarding possible scholarships. They often have educational assistance programs that are not advertised. Also, employers sometimes have educational assistance plans for employees and/or their dependents.
