How do you find grants and scholarships? First, pay attention to offers from your own community. Many foundations offer scholarships to local colleges. They often do this with the hope that you'll stay in the community to practice whatever it is you're going back to school to learn.
But grants and scholarships are available from many, many places, and a search on the Internet can be confusing. It can be helpful to find a website that maintains a collection of grants and scholarships.
One such website is SchoolGrantsBlog.com. The site focuses on grants, not scholarships. Dona Collins of School Grants Blog wrote to tell me that the site has more than 100 articles about how to go about winning a grant.
Check it out, and keep your eyes open for opportunities everywhere you look.
