Well, to be honest, you do need good grades. But I am sure Ask.com will not give you correct answers all the time. I would use more appropriate sites. Try: dictionary.com google.com bing.com answers.com any of these will give you better results than Ask.com I can assure you that.
In order to get a scholarship, you must decide the type of scholarship you want. You also need to start looking for scholarships at least one year before entering college. Think about applying for a fellowship and recognize what you can expect from a scholarship when you apply for it. Check out the link for additional details http://www.ehow.com/how_1907_scholarship.html.
Also check out community organizations such as American Business Womens Association and ethnic groups such as if you are Greek, etc. Do your research, as someone said, at least a year ahead. You might find enough grants and one-time awards to have enough for college. Also, try to find scholarships/grants you don't have to pay back. Also check with friends who have already applied for the above to get hints and suggestions.

The very best thing to do is go to the library of the community college nearest you and ask them about a book of scholarships, they will be able to help you, or talk to a librarian at your local library about getting information for scholarships. There are thousands of scholarships out there, they have them for battered women, people with red hair (at least they use to), and just about everything under the sun. The trick is to do your research to find them, they don't just jump out at you and people won't tell you because most don't know about them.

look online, a good idea is to sing up for fastweb.com or collegeboard.com also dot sweat it if you dont get any there is always FAFSA which u sign up in 12th grade, and Cal Grants as well as financial and from colleges. Also you can apply for work-study in college which is basically working on campus and receiving say $14 and hr, $7 comes from the school and the other $7 comes from the government.
