listed, on this page (scroll down), scholarships and financial

the greater chances you will have of receiving a scholarship. Remember,

page, that if you apply for a scholarship as a junior,
sophomore, or freshman, rather than waiting until you are a senior, you
highly increase your chances of getting a scholarship for college, or
even one specifically for a given year of high school, if that is what
you are looking for.
