Your NWC scholarships are just the beginning of scholarship opportunities available to you, if you're willing to pursue them.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Use the InternetThere are literally millions of scholarship opportunities on the Web. Let's say you declare photography as your major: search for "Photography Scholarships" or "Photo Scholarships in Wyoming."
Think of companies that are linked to your majorIn the photography industry, for example, search out manufacturers of cameras, lenses, paper, chemicals used to develop film, graphic-arts dedicated software, etc. Search their websites for "Scholarships."
Use your uniquenessYou'll find scholarships for left-handed students, students with certain hair color, nationality, ethnicity, etc. Don't forget about clubs and organizations where your parents and/or grandparents may be members.
Prepare a Personal Essay or College Goal Statement
This allows scholarship grantors (donors) a glimpse of who you really are and why college is important to you. Again, use the Web. Search for "Personal Essay Examples" or "College Goal Statement Examples."
Beware of scholarship scamsIf a company or organization requests a payment before you're eligible, consider looking elsewhere. If you run across an organization like this, contact Jennifer Anderson. She'll look into it for you.
Lastly, think of applying for scholarships as a jobIf you spend one hour applying for scholarships and receive $1,000, that's $1,000 an hour!
