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 an excellent resource for finding information on scholarships from organizations throughout the United States. There are also a number of websites available to assist students in their scholarship search. View a guide to free scholarship searches online, and visit iGrad via jwuLink to view the Scholarship Center.

Many companies provide scholarship aid for children of their employees, while others provide aid directly to students who work for them part time while in school.
