Scholarships

Pursuing Scholarships is Worth the College Savings

Unlike student loans, scholarships are free money that do not have to be repaid. But it takes some effort to receive scholarship funds.

Even if it's only $100, apply. For every $100 you might win, that's $100 less you'll have to borrow. On the average student loan, you'll pay nearly $2 for every dollar borrowed. Don't overlook small, local scholarships, and don’t let applying for larger scholarships intimidate you.

Scholarships are listed by category and application due date. Check back often for new additions!
