External Scholarship Resources

 

It is recommended for students to actively look and apply for scholarships through the duration of their program. Applying for external scholarships is time well invested and can literally pay off in the end. Patience is the key. Make sure you are paying attention to deadlines, requirements and requested documents before submission. Beware of any scholarship websites that ask for application fees. You should be able to apply for several different types of scholarships using free resources. Below is a list of websites that are a good starting point, but also do your own searches to expand your possibilities.
