Applying for outside scholarships is another option that students have when seeking to finance their education. Students should start their scholarship search by looking in their “own backyard.” Check your high school guidance counselor offices, your local libraries, your local rotary club, your church, your employer, or your bank. However, be mindful of scholarship scams! Never pay a fee to search for scholarships or to apply for scholarships!
Important: If a student receives an outside scholarship, they are responsible for notifying the Financial Aid Office about the details and any restrictions of the award. External/Outside Scholarships should be reported to the Financial Aid Office through Financial Aid Self Service. Instructions on how to report an outside scholarship can be found here.
The following list may help you locate outside scholarships to assist with the bottom line of your tuition bill.
