Outside Scholarships

There are many other potential scholarship sources that students should consider to help finance their education. Students should contact the higher education assistance agency in their home state for information about the possibility of state grants or scholarships. It is recommended that students apply for outside scholarships as soon as possible since most organizations have early application deadlines. 

Scholarship aid is often available from high school and community organizations with which students or their parent(s) may be affiliated. Local libraries are excellent resources for finding information on scholarships from organizations throughout the United States. There are also a number of websites available to assist students in the scholarship search.
