    Search everywhere for scholarships. When you find one that has passed, put it on your scholarship calendar for next year so you do not miss it, with the link to the application.

    Keep all your essays/nursing entrance/college essays. They come in very handy when writing all those essays for scholarships (just a little change here and there makes things amazingly easy).

    Check out all your local organizations (Elks Club, Soroptomist, parents employers, etc.) and even other college financial aide websites and offices.

    Tell everybody to keep their eyes out for scholarships.
