    Check back frequently for updates and newly posted scholarships.

    Never pay for applying for a scholarship or pay an entry fee to a scholarship contest.  Listed below are only SOME of the many scholarships available to you.  At the bottom of this page are search engines you may use to find more scholarships.

    Scholarship Search Suggestions:

    • Start Early! You should start looking for scholarships 12-18 months before your start of college.
    • Do not ignore small scholarships. Four scholarships for $250 are just as good as one for $1,000.
    • Apply every year. This is an annual process, not just an incoming college freshman process. You may become eligible for scholarships as you move through college that you were not eligible for as a first-year student.
    • Look locally. Many local community organizations, churches, and business groups award scholarships to students from their city or county.
    • Be methodical. Set aside a few hours each week to search for scholarships and to submit applications.
    • Be strategic. Apply for scholarships that relate to your Major or high school interests and activities. Avoid scholarships where you do not meet the criteria.
