As I've stated before, scholarships are a great thing to apply for. At worst, they say no, and at best, you pick up a little extra cash to help pay for school. I personally came from a family where I was the first person to go to college, and I didn't have a lot of money to pay for school. I did get two scholarships that helped a lot - without them, I don't know what I would have done. I received thousands of dollars a year in free money, because some groups wanted to provide opportunities for people like me.
