Off Campus Scholarships
Types of Scholarships
There are many different types of scholarships that are available. Some scholarships are based upon merit, while others are based upon financial need. There are also scholarship programs that give special consideration to minority students or for students entering a particular degree program or field of study.
When to Begin Searching for Scholarships
You should begin searching for scholarships as soon as possible. Many scholarship opportunities have application requirements and deadlines that must be met. If you begin searching too late, you may miss out on valuable opportunities. It is never too early to begin searching for scholarships for college.
Begin your scholarship search locally. Your community may provide the best (and least advertised) opportunity. Local clubs, businesses, organizations, and churches are all potential sources.
The requirements are different for every scholarship program. Before applying, make sure that you fully understand all of the application procedures and the eligibility criteria. Some scholarship applications require an essay or another demonstration of your potential. Others require a minimum GPA or standardized test score.
The list below includes links to a wide variety of free scholarship searches. Many more can be found on the internet as well as at your local library. Beware of scholarship sites or agencies that charge a fee. Most scholarship information is free of charge.
