Local scholarships are a free way to be awarded for your achievements and get extra money for college. With scholarship and organization websites boasting a seemingly endless supply of awards, applying can easily have low outcomes for getting scholarships. By others applying for the same national scholarships you are, the odds of securing those awards may be against you. Instead of looking for national awards where your application will be up against hundreds maybe even thousands of students across the U.S., see what's offered locally in your hometown.
