Scholarship Opportunities

Most students have the greatest opportunities for scholarships from the colleges and universities to which they are applying.  Students need to check each institution’s website closely for the deadlines and specifics of each scholarship under consideration.

Outside scholarships are also available for many individuals based on academic performance, leadership skills, personal talents, and other criteria.  These are sponsored by various businesses, individuals, foundations, and organizations. Students are encouraged to apply for these scholarships in addition to college based scholarships mentioned above. The internet provides sources for scholarships and here are just a few sites for your review.


Beware of scams! If it costs to apply, be careful! Most of the legitimate scholarships do not require fees to apply!
