Websites to use as search tools for scholarships: 

Random scholarships - look through and find ones that work for you - https://www.mometrix.com/blog/scholarships-for-college/

Scholarship website - There are over 135; however, I will say many don't apply to the Pleasanton students. I was able to see a few that some Pleasanton kids could apply to if you want to look through them. The majority of the scholarships was for Hall County residents and graduates from Grand Island schools. It is worth looking through and applying for the ones that the students can though. Scholarship directory - see what scholarships are offered - http://www.gicf.org/scholarships/directory Create an account here and apply for the scholarships - https://www.grantinterface.com/Home/Logon?urlkey=gicfscholarship
