should be looking at

I'm not sure where to go, or what universities to go to, or even which city I should be looking at.

If you 'should be looking at' something, then it is a good idea to focus your attention on it.  In the example sentence, the speaker doesn't know which city to focus his attention on.  Notice the following:

  1. He should be looking at the big picture, but all he can think about is tomorrow.
  2. I should be looking at different cars to rent, but I just want to play video games.

A 'scholarship' is money that is given by an institution to pay for an exceptional student's studies.  Scholarships can be given for academics, athletics, personal background, etc.  Notice the following:
