Get Local Scholarships for College

Look to local sources when applying for scholarships. You are much more likely to get a scholarship from the school's PTA than you are to get the scholarships given by giants like Coca-Cola and Calgon. It's all a numbers game. National scholarship searches will have hundreds more applicants than local organizations. So increase your odds of getting some dough for school by going local. Many local scholarships in rural areas typically have less than five applicants. Check with your guidance counselor to see what is available
