Scholarships

Each January, our scholarship application opens for our 100+ scholarship opportunities.  We open a select number of scholarships again in August.  This year, summer applications will be accepted from August 17-28. 

You can apply to several scholarship opportunities at once using our General Application. This application can also auto-match students to other scholarship opportunities. Many of those opportunities require additional information, and we encourage you to apply for every scholarship you’re eligible for to increase your chances of an award! Search through our comprehensive Scholarship Index to find the right opportunities for you.  Students who apply in January will hear about any awards as early as May of that school year.

Please note: you must be an admitted student to apply.
