• Scholarships are funds that, normally, do not need to be repaid. Many scholarships, though, may require that the student study or work in a specific field, maintain a minimum GPA, file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and even submit an essay. Please be sure to review all requirements for applying for the scholarship, how to renew the scholarship (if necessary), and conditions for receiving the funds. Don t forget to check with local organizations for scholarships such as volunteer and civic organizations, honor societies/school clubs, employers (student and parent), businesses, place of worship, and your local library.

    The key to applying for a variety of scholarships is to apply early! You should begin to inquire about scholarship applications for a fall semester (September) as early as January-March. For many scholarships, funds are limited and may only be awarded on a first come/first served basis. If you are beginning in a Spring semester, scholarship opportunities will be very limited as most scholarships are awarded for a full academic year.
