Finding Winnable Scholarships

lgellarlgellar Registered User Posts: 524 Member
My school let seniors out really early this year, so I'm pretty much off the month of May until my summer job starts in June. As such, I'll have plenty of time to work on scholarships. I know about websites like FastWeb, but I don't really think I'm qualified enough to win those scholarships since I'll be competing against students from all over the nation. Are there any other good ways to find money for college? By the way, I don't have my own car, and both my parents work, which is why I'm not actively searching for a different job that would start earlier. (The job I have lined up will not require me to drive).
