Scholarship Information

Scholarships are monetary awards made to students to help fund the student’s higher education studies. Scholarships may come from a variety of sources such as the college itself, private donors, outside agencies or state scholarship programs. Scholarships may be awarded to students based on the student’s financial need, academic merit or area of study. Some scholarship programs fund students from a certain region or high school or students with a specific skill or trait. The majority of scholarship programs require an application and an essay, and many require letters of recommendation. It is advisable that you start your college scholarship search early as many scholarships have early application deadlines.
