1. There may be locally funded scholarships just for students graduating from your high school or for students within your area. HS guidance counselors should know about them. Be sure to speak with one at your high school. He/she can explain the ins and outs of all the types of financial aid.

2. . Many colleges/universities have scholarship/grant funds (funds that do not need to be repaid) for just their own students. Staff members of the colleges/universities will need the info from your completed FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid – http://www.fafsa.ed.gov ) to determine if you will be awarded any scholarships/grants. I hope you have checked with the school you plan on attending to find out if there are any scholarships for which you may qualify. You can look on the Financial Aid Office web pages for the school or telephone the Financial Aid Office of the school and talk with a real person.

The deadlines for a lot of college/univ. scholarships for the 2012-2013 have already passed or are coming up quickly, by the way.

3. You can also look for scholarships for which you may qualify/to which you may wish to apply by using what I think is the best, most reliable database: Scholarship Search offered by the well-respected College Board:
* http://apps.collegeboard.org/cbsearch_ss/welcome.jsp
Click on the Start link in the middle of the text.
If you choose to register (free) so you may return later and modify your search strategy, feel secure that you will not receive spam emails. A HS guidance counselor can advise you on using Scholarship Search and give you tips on how not to select too many defining terms in your search strategy, which may result in a poor scholarship search result.

4. There are specific scholarships for dancers. Dance Magazine has a guide to dance scholarships:
* http://www.dancemagazine.com/issues/August-2011/2011-Dance-Magazine-Scholarship-Guide

5. When you do find a scholarship for which you want to apply, make sure you meet the scholarship requirements, be sure to follow the application rules to the letter; use perfect spelling, grammar and punctuation; and submit your application before the deadline.

6. Many, many other students will be applying for the same scholarships and only a few or maybe just one will be awarded.

Please do not pin all your hopes of higher education financing on being awarded enough scholarship/grant funds to cover all your college expenses. I do hope you have been saving any gift money and earnings – as much as possible for a number of years.
