It may be helpful to think of this from a wider perspective. What I mean is, you might consider not earning a single scholarship that will offset most costs, and instead set the goal of earning multiple scholarships. There are tons of "smaller" scholarships offered by organizations, companies, and foundations that could stack up and then "make a difference". Does that make sense?
