         Colleges, Universities and local businesses usually have their own scholarships.  Normally, you can find these by going on the college or university Financial Aid or Scholarship page.  For local scholarships, contact the business.  Here are some other things to consider:

1.     Thoroughly read the scholarship “Eligibility” criteria. IMPORTANT NOTE:  for students who are NOT US citizens, permanent residents or eligible non-citizens, (even though you may be a DACA student), AND the eligibility statement says that you must meet one of these criterion and you do not meet at least one of them, then you are not eligible to apply for THAT scholarship.  DACA students are also NOT eligible for Federal Student Aid and may NOT normally complete the FAFSA, which requires the student to have a social security number.  If you have any questions about this, please contact me.   If the eligibility criteria or scholarship purpose statement make no mention of a requirement to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen, then I suggest that you proceed with completing your scholarship application. If unsure, please contact me.   

2.     If the scholarship application requires that you upload/provide a Student Aid Report (SAR), and you are not a senior in high school, just indicate somewhere in the application that you do NOT have a SAR,  because you CANNOT complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  If this issue does come up as you are completing you scholarship application and you are not sure what to do, please contact me.

3.     What is the “Deadline” date for completing the scholarship application?

4.     Are essays required?

5.     Are Letters of Reference or Recommendation required?

6.     Is completion of the “FAFSA” required?  Most scholarship organizations will ask for a copy of the “Student Aid Report.”  If you are a senior in high school, the only way to get a Student Aid Report is to complete the FAFSA.

7.     If you DO NOT have a Social Security Number, you will not be able to complete the electronic version of the FAFSA.

8.     If a transcript required, please check with your Registrar. 

9.     Are there any documents you need to provide to “prove” anything?

10.  I highly recommend that you prepare a Resume, especially showing extra-curricular and volunteer activities.
