If none of these scholarship opportunities meet your requirements, there are several ways you can seek funding.

Talk to your school counselor. They may know more about opportunities in your area, or have the resources to find them. You can also inquire at local businesses and community organizations (Zonta, Lions Club, youth groups, etc). Community groups are often willing to help their local students achieve their aspirations.
