One thing many students overlook is the opportunity to apply for scholarships: Scholarships for U.S. Citizens and Eligible Non-citizens & Scholarships for Newly Naturalized American Citizens.

We also suggest reaching out to your local Rotary Club and inquiring about any potential locally-sponsored scholarships.
