Should I just give up on my Scholarship hunt at this point?

Right now, I'm trying to find scholarships that I can apply and win immediately so I can use it to pay for a Study Abroad Program in Japan this summer(for my major) before it's deadline on March 1st.

No matter how hard I try, I can't find a single scholarship that I qualify for because I'm not a full-time student. People keep saying how scholarships are "easy", which is a load of BS. If it's so easy, then why am I'm struggling to find one for part-time students like myself?

    These scholarships are usually offered by your college's study abroad system. Has that resulted in nothing?

    @MYOS1634 Pretty much nothing because they all seem to be restricted only to Full-Time Students. Right now, I'm applying for a Study Abroad Grant(since it doesn't mention if whether or not I'm required to be a Full-Time Student in order to qualify) to give it a shot and see what happens next.

    Generally part time students are expected to be doing something most of the time (ie., Work, raise children ) and thus aren't expected to go abroad. I'm afraid it's a loophole. :-(
    Fingers crossed on the study abroad grant .

    @MYOS1634 The only reason why I'm not a Full-Time Student is because of how I reluctant I am to go full-time. I fear that going full-time will conflict with my work schedule too much to the point where I have no choice but to quit my job and risk racking myself up in more credit card and student loan debt than I already have while. Plus, I don't know if taking more courses at University will significantly increase the tuition cost, which is another fear of mine of going full-time.
