    You should apply to both kinds, though don't spend too much time on the complicated ones that you don't have time to apply to other scholarships. You should probably knock out the ones that don't take a lot of time to do, then move on to the ones that take a bit more time.

    Well...that every one is dependent upon the scholarship. Some require you to use for the period of you sophomore, junior or senior yr. Majority of them calls for you to use junior yr. You will have to begin shopping for them now and make a planner writing down all of the dates of the cut-off date. Check you steering counselor for scholarships and certainly FASTWEB. Good success.
