There are dozens of other funding directories describing college aid. But, none of them are like this one. First, unlike other directories, the High School Senior's Guide focuses only on merit and no-need scholarships. Not one of the programs covered here requires financial need. Plus, only programs open to college-bound high school seniors are included. No more scanning through hundreds of listings that apply to currently-enrolled college students, not to you. In addition, the entries here are grouped by discipline, so you can go directly to the area you want to study. Not sure what your major will be? No problem. There's even a section listing programs that are open to support studies in any area. The High School Senior's Guide provides the only way to find money for college based soley on academic record, writing or artistic ability, speech-making skills, athletic success, high school club membership, religious or ethnic background, parents' military or organizational activities, and even pure luck in random drawings. Perhaps that's why College Financial Aid gave the High School Senior's Guide 4 stars--its highest rating!
