Scholarship Links

Mostly creating this for Robyn and Alec so I have an ongoing list of scholarships for them to apply for.  Originally created 8/24/2016.  Ideally these are non-need based scholarships for high school seniors entering their freshman year of college.  A couple are for current college students.

Also a nice tool to estimate your EFC from FAFSA before you dig into all this:
https://fafsa.ed.gov/FAFSA/app/f4cForm?execution=e2s1

(Tip: Create a scholarship application email address; some of these are going to get you *spammed*)
