If you click on “Scholarships” on the left hand side menu, you’ll see a category called “Local Scholarships”. These are scholarships that are specific to your high school or residential address. Because of this, the number of potential applicants is smaller, which improves your chance of winning. We therefore recommend you prioritize your local scholarships.
Remember, though, that these scholarships are matched to you based only on your school or address, so there may be other criteria that make you ineligible (e.g. GPA).
If your “Local Scholarship” area is blank, ask your counselor to add some of your local scholarships to Going Merry.
