Search for scholarships

A scholarship is money for college that doesn’t need to be paid back. Often students will need to demonstrate that they deserve the money—either because they get good grades, are involved in community service, or meet other criteria. Scholarships can be sponsored by large corporations, small community organizations, state or federal government or colleges. No matter who you are, there is a scholarship for you!

Keep track of all deadlines and requirements, so you don’t miss out on a scholarship opportunity.
