It was a bit challenging since it was the first time I ever filed for financial aid, but I don't expect any problems next year.

It really depends upon what major you are in, how easy it is to get a scholarship. If you find yourself without one, you can go to the financial aid office to see if there are any available. If there are some, you will get one. If not, you can be put on a waiting list in case any aid frees up (like if someone drops out mid-semester)
That office is good for just regular financial aid advice too. They are all too willing to write down a ton of information to help you.

I got nothing from the school. For a university that prides in giving resources to students every scholarship is either for the "needy" like I actually am, or the genius, which I didn't make the cut.

When I asked the campus financial aid office how I could get money for school they did two things. First, they scanned my student ID card, which provided them with my FAFSA information, then told me I was considered ineligible for any easy free money. Second, the handed me a cookie-cutter list of scholarship sources and basically told me I was on my own to find out what I was eligible for and not, as well as acquiring what I was qualified for.
Basically, if the FAFSA says you're not getting anything, you're on your own.

The Reason I Found This Scholarship – My first year of college I received a two thousand-dollar scholarship through Penn State without even having to fill out an application. As of this year, I found out that I am not eligiable for the same federal grants I was last year. So I visited the financial aid office where one of the advisers gave me an information card with several websites that could lead me toward scholarships including this one.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
