  1. Jalisa:There is no such thing as a guaranteed scohsarlhip that you can simply apply for. You might be able to qualify for an automatic scohsarlhip if you have exceptionally high grades or standardized (SAT/ACT) test scores. For example, the outstanding Washington University in St. Louis will give an automatic $2000 scohsarlhip to any National Merit Scholarship finalists who select WashU as their first choice when applying for college. Many other schools have similar programs.Forget about scohsarlhips for the moment students who are just starting to investigate how they’re going to pay for college put too much emphasis on scohsarlhips, which are NOT the primary source of financial aid, and not what you should be focusing on. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t worry about scohsarlhips or that you shouldn’t apply for scohsarlhips I’m just saying that you need to learn about the Federal Student Aid program FIRST, because that’s far more likely to be your realistic source of financial aid for college.You can ask your guidance counselor for a copy of this US Department of Education booklet, or you can read the entire thing online. It’s called “Funding Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal Student Aid”, and when you read it, you’ll learn all about the $80 billion of financial aid that the federal government provides to US college students each year. That’s where your real assistance is far more likely to come from. Don’t worry though, while you’re reading about the Stafford loan and the Pell Grant and the Federal Work Study Program and all of the other forms of financial aid that are available, you’ll also learn about scohsarlhips, too.Reading the guide will tell you what’s available, who qualifies, how much you might receive, and most importantly, how to apply for it all. You’ll also learn about common scams that you’re going to want to avoid. There’s a lot of good info in there for your parents, too, so pass the booklet on to them when you’re done reading it there’s enough information in there for everyone.The link below will take you to the online home of the booklet or you can ask for a “hard copy” at school. Good luck!
