Scholarship Search

How to Use the On-Line Scholarship Search

You may look for scholarships on this site in a number of ways:
  1. If you know the name of the scholarship in which you are interested, enter it (or any part of the name) in the Scholarship Title field then click the Submit button.  A list of matches will then be displayed and you can click on the name of the scholarship to view its details as well as information on how to apply.
  2. If you are doing a general search for scholarships, select your Student Type and one or more of the Program Areas listed. You might want to start with General University Scholarships selected as a minimum, and then also select program areas that correspond with your major or special programs you are involved in. If you do not know the school/college in which your major is offered, there is a link to a page below that will help you find your major area.
  3. Most program areas have sub-programs that allow you to more easily find your major.
  4. You may also do a criteria search for scholarships.  This will narrow you search of scholarships; so always conduct a broader search as well so you won’t miss a potential scholarship.
