Find Local Scholarships in Your Own Backyard

Local scholarships are often less competitive than national scholarships but similar in amount. While a student's first instinct may be to aim for high-dollar, national college scholarships, experts say this may turn him or her into a "little fish in a big pond." Instead, local scholarships may often offer less competition and a greater chance for success.
