With tuition rates so high, it's important to target the best financial aid opportunities out there. Scholarships are a great form of financial aid because they're one of the few sources of tuition money that don't have to be paid back. This makes finding and applying for scholarships a crucial part of the financial aid process.
Many online resources are available to make the scholarship search process much simpler. For example, ScholarshipPoints.com provides new scholarship opportunities, the latest scholarship news, and tips to make the scholarship application process even easier.
The team at StudentScholarshipSearch.com team has come up with a list of powerful scholarship search secrets. These secrets help students find the right scholarships to apply for, and dramatically increase their odds at landing a scholarship award. Now in its sixth edition, reviewers have strong words for Scholarship Search Secrets:

Remember, there are scholarships for everyone. Many students get discouraged because they think scholarships are only available for students who excel in athletics or academics, but that notion is just a myth. There are scholarship awards for students who participate in leadership activities, for students who commit their time to community service, and for students who are musicians. If a talent or interest exists, there's probably a scholarship award for it.
