One place that I recommend checking is @firstgenchisme on Instagram. They are an amazing place that shares college resources for BIPOC, Low income, and First-Generation students. They just added a scholarship spreadsheet and plan to update it throughout the year. Be sure to search up https://www.firstgenchisme.com/scholarships for more information.
