Scholarships for students already enrolled in college

We keep getting email notifications of scholarship competitions for high school seniors. I can only think of a few for students who already in college. They may not have the time to generate essays as we did last year, but the need continues up until they graduate.

Anybody have any suggestions for where to look? Fortunately we do have a small merit scholarship that renews annually, from her college, but that's all.

    Departmental scholarships from the college for sophs, juniors and seniors.

    It's much harder for current college students to get outside scholarships since most are for incoming frosh only.

    As mentioned above, have your child check with the dept of her major for any scholarships that they might offer. I would have her check soon because some schools have fall deadlines for consideration.
