I have been searching for scholarships to attend Angel Academy of Art in Florence Italy for about a week now. I have come up with a list of 16 different scholarships that apply to me but I just had a couple questions.

Do you think it is best to make a general portfolio to send out to as many different foundations as possible or is it better to send exactly what each of the foundations are asking for and not apply to quite as many?

General portfolio sent to 50+ foundations or specific portfolio sent to <15?

Lastly, I have searched high and low for scholarships. I looked at the library and found a book Scholarships and Grants for the Individual... found a few there. Search for private foundations online... a few more. I tried fastweb and found nothing but lottery type scholarships. I emailed AAA itself and asked and they don't really have any advice.

Does anyone know where else I could look to get a larger list of scholarships that would work for me??

Thanks so much for taking the time to help me out.
