Scholarships are a source of Financial Aid that you do not have to repay. There are thousands of scholarships available to students based on criteria such as need, academics, place of residency or selected major. Your financial aid analyst will be happy to help you find the best matches for you. If you choose to search on your own, please keep these tips in mind:
- Watch for scams. A scholarship application should only cost you the electricity to turn on your computer, the stamp to mail the application in, and the time it takes to write essays and/or request letters of recommendation. If you are ever asked to send money in order to apply for a scholarship, don’t do it! Here is more information about scholarship scams.
- Pay attention to deadlines. Scholarships have various deadlines throughout the year. It's important to know what the deadline is for the particular scholarship you are applying for.
- Avoid the self-doubt pitfall. There are thousands of scholarships out there. Several of them go unclaimed because people don't even bother applying for them because they don't think they are eligible. Don't cut yourself out of the running by simply not taking the time to research and apply for a scholarship.
