Below are sources for scholarships. Scholarship is money you do not have to pay back!
Scholarships can be found everywhere! While there is not a single, central source that lists all scholarship opportunities, if you take the time to search using a variety of sources, it is often worth it.
Book stores and libraries often house large reference books that help to identify scholarships, but most information is now found on websites.
On this page, you have access to quick-links that provide extensive information on many scholarship possibilities. Students and helpful family members must make an effort to seek the scholarships for which they are eligible and then follow the recommended steps to apply.
In addition to websites and reference books, students should check with any of the following sources to reveal scholarship money: community organizations in which student or parent has participated; parent/student places of employment; places of worship; and colleges to which the student is applying.
Please note that scholarship searching should be free! Do not be fooled by scams that require payment in return for scholarship searching. Being diligent in your independent search will render the same results, for free.
