Student Scholarships at Studentscholarships.org
Shawnee Guidance Department gets scores of mailings regarding scholarships and funding for college. The above web site is a research and hub for many scholarships nationwide. Per my research it is a legitimate, sound, tested web site...including a review by U.S.News. That said, we have little direct experience with it. Please use at your own risk and contact us with feedback if it proves unwieldy or invalid. Remember to watch for scholarship scams and beware:
1. Any offers that want cash up front
