Scholarships can be a source of assistance for school. Check out CSI's scholarship web page, http://scholarships.csi.edu/. Pay particular attention to the boxes at the left, where you can learn more about outside scholarships and scholarship search engines, which help to match you with appropriate scholarships. Please visit the CSI Career Center in the Taylor Building to learn about more resources. There are many free resources for finding financial assistance for your education. We do not recommend services that charge fees of any kind for finding or getting scholarships or other financial aid.
You may also find support from people who share your cultural heritage. Adults in your community network may be successful business owners who want to assist young people as they get established in the United States. Cultural celebrations such as the Quinciañera or Bar Mitzvah may provide an opportunity for you to share your educational goals and for others to assist you in meeting these goals.
