Good Scholarships to look into?

<p>Hi, I am going to NYU which is verrry pricy :)
I'm having a hard time weeding through ALL these scholarships and finding out which are best to pursue and I have a good chance of getting. I am looking more for financial need scholarships or ones that are chosen based on essay since my writing skills are good.
My academics are good but not outstanding compared to competition. I have a 28 act and 3.2 unweighted gpa.
I'm a gay black male if that helps with scholarships?</p>
