****Most colleges have information about scholarships they have available on the college websites. In addition, look for freshmen merit scholarships. Some colleges require a separate scholarship application, others may base awards on the admissions application. Make sure you investigate to see what is required and the deadline for applications to be considered for scholarship awards.

****Investigate your employee benefits and scholarships. Contact your employers and find out whether your company offers any scholarships to children of employees. Also, have your child to check with their employers to see if they offer any scholarships.
