Scholarship Resources

Here are some other places to look for ideas and help:

  • Your employer. Many businesses have scholarship opportunities for their employees.
  • Religious organizations. Some churches are able to offer scholarships. Even if this is not a service offered, they might have ideas of where to look.
  • Your community. Local businesses, local or state PTAs, and local chapters of Dollars-for-Scholars are all options to look into when on a scholarship hunt.
  • Your hobbies. Hobbies with national governing bodies are the most likely sources of college funding.
  • Your academic interests. Many corporations, professional organizations and honor societies have scholarships for students with a demonstrated interest in a particular field.
  • Companies and Philanthropic Foundations. Companies like Coca-Cola have scholarships available.
  • College Raptor has articles with tips on how to make the most of your scholarship search and put out the best applications possible.
  • The Scholarship System gives free webinars and articles on the subject of finding and winning scholarships. They also offer essay editing.
  • Scholar Snapp allows you to create a profile with the standard content requested by scholarship applications. Saving this data in one secure, centralized place allows you to reuse the content for other scholarship applications without requiring you to retype your personal information for each subsequent application.
