I still have yet to win any scholarships aside from the annual Pell Grant. I started applying for scholarships during the summer of my high school graduation and freshman year of college. Needless to say, the big scholarships have yet to bite on my many attempts of acquiring them. Yet, I have managed to find very small amount in many other places by winning contests such as these. Do not give up and always be on the lookout for opportunities, constant vigilance.
