Outside Scholarship Resource Guide

Below you will find various resources for scholarships and college enrollment assistance. Review the following information before registering with any outside organizations or submitting private information to websites.

  • Please exercise caution when applying for third-party scholarships. Do not pay or provide sensitive personal information to any online financial aid service.
  • Speak with your employer and parents’ employers about any scholarships that their businesses might provide (ex. Walmart, Amazon, BlueCross BlueShield)
  • Churches and community foundations also provide scholarships specifically to local area students, unlike the national scholarships offered by corporations and charities. Check with your church, civic organization, or high school guidance office for more information.
  • When writing your application essays, include your current circumstances, your future educational and career goals, and mention how a scholarship can help you achieve those goals. Follow minimum/maximum word guidelines and proofread the essay before submitting it.
