Scholarship help... it's not to early to begin
The TFS scholarship database represents 27 years of scholarship research and is many times larger than any other source of scholarship information. The database is made up of millions of need-based, merit and general scholarships.

In addition to general scholarships that can be used at any school, the scholarship database contains millions of scholarships that are school specific, meaning they are only available at the sponsoring school. New scholarships are added to the database every month.

Library patrons can remotely access scholarships, financial aid and career information from their library, home, school or workplace.

Go to, create an account and begin looking for scholarships and financial aid.  It's never to early to start!

Thank you to Wells Fargo and The Inland Library System for this database.
