Nailah’s Answer

Hello!!!

There are sooo many resources online for obtaining scholarships, and the good thing about many of them is that they allow you to filter out various aspects that may or may not apply to you. This allows you to directly identify the perfect fit for you, your academic career thus far, and your academic plans in the future!


Some websites I suggest are:

- The U.S. Federal Government's scholarship search: https://www.careeronestop.org/toolkit/training/find-scholarships.aspx

- Sallie Mae's scholarship search engine: https://www.salliemae.com/college-planning/tools/scholarship-search/

- Cappex/College Greenlight: https://www.cappex.com/scholarships

- Niche: https://www.niche.com/colleges/scholarships/

- Gates Millennium Scholars: www.gmsp.org

- Fast Web www.fastweb.com

- Jack Kent Cooke Foundation www.jckf.org

- Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars www.jackierobinson.org

(The following are for highschoolers)
- Posse Foundation: www.possefoundation.org (Students must be nominated by school or community-based organization in 11th grade)

- Questbridge: www.questbridge.org (Applications for Questbridge’s College Prep Scholarship are due in 11th grade; applications for Questbridge’s National College Match are due in September of 12th grade)

Some great one time scholarships:
American Indian Graduate Center ($1,000-$10,000) www.aigc.com
Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund ($2,500-$15,000) www.apiasf.org/scholarship_apiasf.html
AXA Achievement Scholarship ($10,000-$25,000) www.axa-scholarship.com
Coca-Cola Scholars ($10,000-$20,000) www.coca-colascholarsfoundation.org
Davidson Fellows ($10,000, $25,000, or $50,000) www.davidsongifted.org/fellows
Dell Scholars ($20,000) www.dellscholars.org
Hispanic Scholarship Fund ($1,000-$20,000) www.hsf.net/en/scholarships/programs
Horatio Alger (up to $21,000) www.horatioalger.com/scholarships
United Negro College Fund ($2,500-$10,000) www.scholarships.uncf.org

Last but not least - if you have a prospective school in mind, familiarize yourself with their financial aid office staff! They can inform you of internal scholarship opportunities that may be a perfect fit, for you. :-)

Remember - persistence is key! Try to create a daily practice of searching and applying for the best fits, as expansively as possible!

Best of luck to you!

Bryce’s Answer

Hi Lauren,

Scholarships come from a variety of sources, so where to apply differs greatly. For scholarships through your school you would go to your schools website and find their scholarships/financial aid web page. If you are looking for a community or business based scholarship they will most likely have something on their own website for you to apply through. Also, your high school counselor should have more information about where you need to apply for specific scholarships. I hope this helps and good luck in your college search!

Joanna’s Answer

Hello Lauren,
Thank you for your question! I would agree with everyone else, the best place to find scholarship is working with your counselor. I would also like to add that if your parents are part of a worker's union, sometimes the Union also offers scholarship. There are so many scholarships that are specific to what you would like to study in college and others are that are specific to your background such as race. So you can ask your counselor regarding those types as well.
