SALISBURY, Md. - Finding the right scholarship is not always an easy task, especially for someone like Maureen Williams.
She's a guidance counselor at James M. Bennett High School in Salisbury, and knows first hand how overwhelming the process can be.
That's why she developed a database that lists local and national scholarships.
"There are more than 100 scholarships on the database, 76 of which are active. They are on there in order of due date so that if they are working on several applications, they will have a took to prioritize and organize the applications," she said.
The database serves as a saving grace for one local student who is just getting the ball rolling.
"I think it would make you feel a little better because you know what's actually out there and it's not like a wild goose chase, you can actually get information about different things," said Alyssa Corkran, a senior at James M. Bennett High School.
There are a plethora of options.
Some are gender-based, others strictly for minorities, and a select few that a student might not even know exists.
"We have a new one this year that's rather interesting the only criteria is that the student's first name be Anthony, Tony, or Antoinette," said Williams.
However, time is running out.
Officials say some of the scholarship applications must be in by March 1st.
