    • To figure out what scholarships are best for you, look at the qualifications of the scholarships. I typically put the grade/age requirement as well as major requirements if they are looking for specific majors. If you meet the requirements and think you can fulfill the requirements to apply, apply to those scholarships.

      Good luck!
