Scholarships from Outside Sources

Tips for Outside Scholarships: 

~Search for a Variety of Scholarships: Start local then work your way out. The Student Financial Services Office recommends exploring multiple sources for scholarships, including churches and community organizations, Masonic Lodges, Elks and Moose Lodges, American Legion and VFW posts, local businesses and trade unions, your high school, as well as parents’ employers who may offer scholarships to their employees’ dependents.

~Don’t Be Discouraged: Always read the requirements for the scholarship, don’t be discouraged by the name of a scholarship. You may not meet all of the requirements for a particular scholarship, but if you are the only person who applies, you could be the recipient.

~Avoid Scholarship Scams: You should never have to pay or purchase a product in order to apply or receive a scholarship. Click here for more information on avoiding scholarship scams.
