*Scholarships awarded to ATI students are in yellow so there could be a greater chance for success for those scholarships. 

We recommend applying for the scholarships in yellow first under the General section then by your program and then by your state.  After that we suggest checking with your employers, churches, VFW, American Legion, Elks Club, Moose Lodge or other organizations for which you belong to see if they will offer a college scholarship.  We then suggest trying other specific scholarships listed then perhaps search engines.
