One of my cousins that I'm close with will be a senior in high school next year. She has a good GPA (4.0 or close to it) from a good school and just took the ACT for the 2nd time (guessing it will be about a 25). She's from a single parent family with minimal funds for college so will most likely go to either LSU or ULL. I don't think she has any plans to apply for scholarships although I'd like to help coordinate the process if there is much of a benefit. For example, if getting a scholarship would help not having to work during college (LSU / ULL) or if it would help getting into a better school. She was born in Texas and lives in Louisiana if that is relevant. I'm assuming it wouldn't hurt to just apply for as many scholarships as possible (although not sure how you find out about them).
