I am a single mom with a very bright rising highschool senior in NC who is interested in studying microbiology. Please help me find scholarship information. I have researched the internet, but only find a couple for which she could apply. She is interested in studying through to her PhD and though she will work during college, I need to find all the $ we can for her.

Hello, I have searched on the internet looking for scholarships that might be available for your daughter. I have included specific scholarships that are applicable to what you describe and are available for either undergraduate or graduate funding. I did not include any scholarships that are offered specifically through one college. That would be a useful search once your daughter has narrowed down, somewhat where she might like to go. I have also included web pages that have lists of scholarships. There are many more on these pages than I have not explored. At the end, I have also included scholarship search engines that I found. You did not mention that your daughter is of any minority, so I didnt include that in my search. However, if she is, that could possibly expand her options. I do want to mention, that for graduate work, most universities offer some type of funding in the form of teaching or research assistantships. They arent large, but they are usually enough to live on. They also, usually allow tuition to be waved.

Hi there. I am assuming your daughter will be a senior in the fall and did not just graduate. Given this, here is what I would suggest (I made scholarship-getting a hobby in high school and really studied it and applied to everything, although I wasn't in microbiology). First, fastweb.com is the best scholarship website I know, and it is free. Never pay for a scholarship website or scholarship finding program. You can find them just as well on your own. I have found that scholarship books can be a little helpful, but I wouldn't buy one-- just get it from the local library. Third, I would suggest that your daughter do some community service this summer, if she hasn't already been doing that. Lots of students get good grades and often students need something else to distinguish themselves as unique and as someone who would add to a college community. Finally, there are lots of scholarships out there for women in science and I would search for scholarships in that area. Also, consider what scholarships are available through colleges and universities, not just organizations. I got almost all of my scholarships after I applied and was accepted to my university. Check to see what universities offer scholarships in that particular area. I know that is not as specific as a real answer would be, but I thought I'd just offer you my two cents. Good luck!
