A List You'll Love : 2011-2012 Academic Scholarship Opportunities by School

Here's a list they'll thank you for! Make sure you send a link to ALL of the aspiring college students in your life, (and current students - SUNY Orange is on the list, too!). There are some wonderful scholarship opportunities made possible by some very generous donors. A run-through the list will tell just how competitive some of these are, so freshman and sophomores take note. One great trick for getting scholarships is knowing what the qualifications are ahead of time. That way, you can apply yourself to those groups and focuses in order to put yourself in good standing for those very helpful dollar amounts in time for senior year!
