Searching for National Scholarship

When beginning your scholarship search, your best opportunities will be close to home. A thorough check of local resources can uncover the majority of scholarship possibilities. If you have already selected a career field, contact professional organizations in that field for potential scholarship opportunities. Many scholarships are based on select criteria such as:

  • Grades
  • Financial need
  • Organization affiliation
  • Chosen college
  • Athletic ability
  • Gender
  • Chosen major
  • Religious affiliation
  • Military background
  • Race
  • Leadership ability
  • Parents’ place of work

It is important to remember scholarships are one source of financial aid with grants, employment, and loans being additional sources of financial aid.  All students are encouraged to apply for federal and state financial aid, whether or not you think that you may be eligible. More information on how to apply for financial aid.

Avoid Promises of Easy Money

Students and families are often motivated by claims of "millions of dollars in scholarships going unclaimed each year." Scholarship search companies that want to sell their services usually make this statement. The following are scholarship scam warning signs:

  • You have to pay a fee or they offer a money back guarantee. Never pay money to get free money. Don’t pay any money to a company searching for scholarships or assisting you with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Requires credit card or bank account information. Never give out your credit card number or bank account number over the phone.
  • Offers exclusive information. Don’t be fooled by someone claiming you are a "finalist" in a contest that you have never entered.
