What scholarships can I apply for?
There are a wide range of scholarships available for students based on a variety of factors for eligibility: subject studied, region, financial need, background, etc. We have compiled a comprehensive directory (left) as well as a shorter, up-to-date Scholarship List (below) that you can reference to find a scholarship that fits you!
When should I apply for scholarships?
Most scholarships start accepting applications in January, with the majority being due in March or April. We recommend that you start early to identify scholarships for which you qualify and create a calendar with the due dates, list of requirements, and essay topics you may need to address. In many cases, you can use parts of your college essays! Don’t forget to check for scholarships given by local organizations and businesses.
What if I don’t know where I am going to college?
Each scholarship will have its own requirements. If college acceptance is a requirement, the scholarship will ask you to submit proof of enrollment before they release the funds. Some scholarships will send the funds directly to your school while others will give you the award to use for school supplies, living expenses, and tuition.
