    General Information on Scholarships

    Here are four critical things to know about scholarships: 

    1. With any scholarship applications: you should NEVER have to pay to apply for a scholarship!
    2. The most common source for scholarships is from the school you will be attending. Most of these scholarships are part of the financial aid package.
    3. The next most likely source of scholarships are from local organizations. There will be far less competition for local scholarships than for state or national scholarships.
    4. The scholarship search engines (many are listed below) can provide lots of information, but they also are commercial sites that will want to send you advertising and multiple e-mails a day.

    We have additional Scholarship Information and Sources in the following categories: Please click on the link below to go to the section. Scholarship sources are sorted by type (local, state, etc.) then by date due when we have been able to find updated information. Scholarship due dates may change slightly from year to year based on where a weekend falls, but are fairly consistent.
