Getting an education can be expensive, so we’ve compiled this list of scholarships and grants to ease the financial strain.  Contact the financial aid or the counseling/advising office at the school you are planning to attend and ask about scholarships that are available for the school and for particular majors. You can also do searches on the Internet to find information on scholarships, or look at sources such as the Worldwide Graduate Scholarship Directory. Be sure to check with your employer and organizations in your community about scholarships or tuition reimbursement programs.
