We strongly recommend exploring the following resources for outside scholarship opportunities. The provided links offer a comprehensive array of scholarship options, and we highly encourage you to diligently complete applications for as many as possible.

Tips for Pursuing Scholarships

  1. Students should always explore ALL of their Financial Aid options and make sure that they complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form before April 1st each year.
  2. Consider your interests, hobbies, jobs, and affiliations (and those of your parents), and begin your search in your own hometown. Check with your high school, clubs, service organizations or wherever you have demonstrated special talents and hard work. Find out if your parents' employers offer any educational benefits.
  3. Scholarships are for EVERYONE. Every student is encouraged to seize the opportunity and engage in the scholarship application process.
  4. The word "essay" should NOT be considered a bad word in the Financial Aid vocabulary.
  5. When searching out scholarships, the Internet is your friend!

  6. There are numerous free scholarship sources available. You do NOT need to pay money for scholarship resources.
  7. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Be very careful of scholarship sources that guarantee you a scholarship (almost always for a fee).
  8. If a scholarship is renewable, make sure that you understand what the criterion for renewal is so that you can make sure that you can retain it for future years.
  9. You should always apply for multiple scholarships. Applying can maximize your chances of receiving financial support

  10. Make sure that you are aware of the different deadline dates. It is important to make sure your application is submitted on time.

  11. "Thank You" - You would be surprised how many times a simple "thank-you" impresses the benefactor.
