Your NWC scholarships are just the beginning of scholarship opportunities available to you, if you're willing to pursue them.
There are literally millions of scholarship opportunities on the Web. Let's say you declare photography as your major: search for "Photography Scholarships" or "Photo Scholarships in Wyoming."
In the photography industry, for example, search out manufacturers of cameras, lenses, paper, chemicals used to develop film, graphic-arts dedicated software, etc. Search their websites for "Scholarships."
You'll find scholarships for left-handed students, students with certain hair color, nationality, ethnicity, etc. Don't forget about clubs and organizations where your parents and/or grandparents may be members.
This allows scholarship grantors (donors) a glimpse of who you really are and why college is important to you. Again, use the Web. Search for "Personal Essay Examples" or "College Goal Statement Examples."
If a company or organization requests a payment before you're eligible, consider looking elsewhere. If you run across an organization like this, contact Dawn Kasinger. She'll look into it for you.
If you spend one hour applying for scholarships and receive $1,000, that's $1,000 an hour!
