Apply for Scholarships to Get Free Money

Want free money for college?  Apply for scholarships, including one offered by International College Counselors:


There are hundreds of thousands of scholarships.  Most interestingly, each scholarship is looking for something different.  Even if a student’s grades aren’t the best, there are still scholarships for them. Scholarships are available for students based on ethnicity, religion, personalities, hobbies, choice of majors, family history, types of service projects, extracurricular activities, skills, ability to answer essay questions and more. Is your student tall, a leader, or a vegetarian activist?  Can they design a greeting card or do a great duck call?  If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions, there is a scholarship to apply to.


How to find scholarships

Finding the right scholarships to try for is the first step towards winning them. There are a number of free online scholarship searches. These specialized websites ask for answers to a few questions and then they will match students with many potential sources for free college money. To make it even easier, these sites allow students to save, organize, and update their search activity.

Additionally, all clients of International College Counselors receive a monthly list of scholarships created especially for our families. Students should also check with their high school counselor about scholarships.

2. Meet the deadlines
