Here are three sites below where SLJ students have been most successful at finding scholarships:
College Board: https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/scholarship-search
College Greenlight: www.collegegreenlight.com
Notes about Outside / Private Scholarships:
Many of the most lucrative scholarships (and those that our students have been most successful at getting) become live in the Spring 2017.
Most financial aid money comes from the federal and state government and from the colleges themselves (roughly 96% of the aid).
Students and families should never pay for a scholarship search. Please beware of scams.
Students are expected to prioritize strong college applications and their schoolwork over scholarship applications.
