Should I even waste my time applying to private scholarships as a white male student with average stats who comes from an upper-middle-class suburban household? Literally half of the scholarships out there have a requirement of being a minority, and then the ones for people with millions of volunteer hours etc. You get the point. So the ones left are either the raffle scholarships or scholarships that might be able to buy half of an iPhone. What's worse is that just when I see one that is both worth applying to and something I might be able to get, they hit me with that "for residents of county x y and z" and of course I live in county w.
