External scholarship information to help fund your education.

External Scholarships

External scholarships are scholarships that have been developed and funded by private organizations and are available to the general public. These can potentially help students cover the costs of their education and education related expenses. Your eligibility depends upon a number of factors, all of which are set forth by the organization which offers the scholarship.

To apply for an external scholarship you first need to find one which might be available to you. For instance, some are available to women going into business-related fields, while others are for teachers seeking continued education. It can be helpful to start your search by locating scholarship opportunities that are specific to your situation.

We have compiled this categorized list of external scholarships to aid in your search. While this is not an exhaustive list of all available scholarships, it does include many national and local opportunities. We encourage you to research the scholarships you are interested in and to learn more about the eligibility requirements and application procedures.  Follow the links to learn more details about the scholarship, including important information such as eligibility requirements and application deadline.
