General Scholarships

 Scholarships are being added to the Fostering Change website all the time. Please review the links below and apply for all of the scholarships that you are eligible for. The more scholarships you apply for the more chances you have of funding your college education and not owing any money for loans. Many first time college students make the mistake of taking out loans for assistance with college while there are scholarships that go unused. It does take effort and organization to be successful with scholarships, but use the calendar link to keep track of your deadlines. You are worth the effort, so do not give up. It is FREE money.
