Scholarship brainstorming activity to do with family and friends:
START NOW!!!

Make a list of everywhere you do business; banks, credit unions, grocery stores, insurance companies, etc. List everywhere you or your family members work or from where they have retired. List all of your favorite activities (turkey hunting, fishing, photography, motocross, skateboarding, etc.). To what organizations do you or your family members belong (Elks, Rotary, NRA, Kiwanis, etc.)? What are your attributes (tall, left-handed, blue-eyed, Irish)? For every answer on that list do an internet search that says, "scholarship for _____________" and fill in the blank with each answer. Check the websites for all of the organizations and businesses. Almost everyone gives some type of scholarship, you just have to have the tenacity to look for them.
