The bst way is to ask on the web site of the school in which you are interested. put the name in google to get the URL or try "Name of school.edu"

Are you the prospective student or the parent of a student?

If you or your child is still in high school, then your guidance department is probably the best source of information.

Financing a college education is an expensive and complicated process, and I think scholarships have come to play a very small part.  Most colleges try to maintain a "need blind" admissions process.  That means they will make grants (and loans) available to candidates who apply and are accepted.

Then there are the National Merit Scholarships that are based on merit, or rather the performance on national standardized tests.

Other sorts of grants and/or scholarships are awarded by organizations to their members or employees.

Some service clubs (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, etc.) also offer scholarships for deserving students.

Many states have organizations such as a higher education commission that can supply all sorts of information on scholarships, loans, and grants that you might want to contact.

I have two children in college and yes it is and has been a very complicated and expensive process.  All comments are great.  Hoping for a one stop shop, but it seems scouring the internet is more to the task.  Thanks for the help.
