Luckily, you can continue to cut down the costs via scholarships. There are plenty of them out there, both big and small amounts, however, it is up to you to seek them out and apply. Don’t worry, we’ve found three ways to get you started with finding scholarships.

Unigo.com | This is a large scale website that requires you to create a profile in order to find scholarships that best suit you. You can also search for scholarships based on athletics, your major, and your minority group.

Chegg.com | Using this website will allow you to kill two birds with one stone. You’ll be able to search for different scholarships as well as rent the textbooks you’ll need for class. This is a website that will serve you throughout your college career.

Look Local | Seek scholarship opportunities at your high school, church, or other local organizations you’re part of. You’ll have a smaller applicant pool, which means a better chance at getting the scholarship.
