Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the best practical resources to applying for scholarships?.
Yes, these are good, practical resources in applying for scholarships.
I also suggest that you consult with your son's high school, as they probably will have information on local scholarships offered by organizations like the Chamber of Commerce or a community organization.
Once your child makes a decision about where to go to college, the college will likely also have a scholarship database that students can access to find information on private scholarships.
Ok thanks so much.
