Scholarships


Although good grades are highly commendable, your child doesn't need a 4.0 GPA to get a scholarship. In fact, thousands of scholarships are available for almost anyone to apply for -- the trick is finding them. Local and community-based scholarships are a good place to start, and your public library or guidance counselor will most likely have all the information your child needs to apply.

Students and parents can also visit fastweb.com to find scholarships and other ways to get financial aid for college.
