Going MerryScholarship Guidance Newsletter (must sign up to receive monthly newsletter)Here's a scholarship search handout detailing what to expect when you visit some of the sites noted above.The 10 Best Scholarship Search platform, Best Scholarship Search and Honest Product Reviews websites have links to the above Search Engines, and many more.
Some scholarship search engines may ask you to pay - you should never pay for a scholarship search!

Example: You say you are a high school senior but it does not specifically ask you what high school.

However, the scholarship is only for seniors who are attending and graduate from Auburn High School.
