Advice from Ms. Paschal on scholarship searching:

  • NEVER pay for scholarship search! This includes ANY companies that promise scholarship dollars.
  • Give yourself a realistic timeline (i.e. apply for one scholarship every two weeks)
  • Only apply to scholarships that you are well qualified for.
  • The CCC has many scholarship books to look through and don’t forget the local library!

See Ms. Paschal in the CCC for further questions.
