Play around with your profile, choose everything that you have a SLIGHT interest in even.
Also, studentawards doesn't always show ALL the scholarships out there, there are so many I found outside of studentawards.
Look around in your community, I found a few from local organizations/foundations.
Or speak with your career counsellor, they would know of places that have some other scholarships less known.

Try to look for other external organizations or companies that are offering scholarships. Sometimes it's time consuming to do the search manually, but to expand your options will definitely make it worth it.

I only had 19 awards show up after I did the profile thing, was I being too specific?

I think 40 awards is a good number to start with. You should apply to all the ones you can from that list first and then move on to more. Plus being less specific gives you a broader list of awards and a lot of them might not help you in your goal at all. Another thing is don't increase your GPA on your profile if you haven't increased it in school. :P

Try changing your profile and provide more info. For example, if they has for max 5 interests, then put down 5!

In order to find more scholarships you should make an appointment with your guidance counsellor and ask them about the scholarships that they know are available. Some schools might actually have a book full of different scholarships!
