Best Scholarship Search Engines

What Are Scholarship Search Engines?

One of the best ways to find scholarships is through scholarship search engines. These websites offer access to millions of scholarships to help you pay for your education. Here are some of the best scholarship websites to start with.

College scholarship search engines, sometimes called scholarship finders, are databases that college students can use to find scholarships and grants. This helps students afford tuition without needing to rely on student loans.

Depending on your situation, you may be able to find scholarships based on your financial need, merits, community service, heritage, gender, orientation and life experience. Some also benefit students who engage in unique hobbies, like duck calling.

By now, you likely have a go-to coping mechanism for when stress, anxiety and problems arise in your life. Hopefully your coping skills are on the healthy side of the spectrum, such as: seeking comfort from the ones you love, getting those endorphins flowing with some exercise, writing in a journal, or meditating.  No matter what you do to deal with stress, everyone can use a little extra support in handling life’s challenges – and one way to get it is through talking with the school counselor.

When social distancing, staying at home and remote learning has become the new “norm”, adjusting can pose challenges, increase anxiety and stress. I am here to help!

These handouts are educational in nature and a reference for older students and adults.  There is a lot of information crammed onto one page.  Hopefully they will be self explanatory, but feel free to call or make an appointment with me for further explanation and discussion.  Sometimes these are complex principles that are being simplified for elementary age children.  Oftentimes, as Dr. Martin Seligman has taught, even though they have memorized the principles they won’t fully understand until they are developmentally able.  Still, learning them sooner will also help them see that the principles work and they will consequently develop sooner!!

You will find they are helpful for adults and children alike.  The whole family will benefit.

Great book/article and website references for your study that will explain the lessons are as follows:

Together, we will get through this and we will be stronger than before.
