Who qualifies?

Whether you’re getting ready to graduate from high school or are an adult going back for your college degree or a graduate program, we may have funding for you. Each year, we award nearly $3 million in scholarships from approximately 375 donor-established scholarship funds and not just to students with a 4.0. Our minimum GPA is 2.0. Many scholarships are for students with financial need, specific majors or diverse life experiences. Our scholarships include awards for two- or four-year colleges and universities, and trade or vocational schools. We also offer scholarships for K-12 schools and enrichment opportunities for music lessons or camps. Our application makes it easy for students to apply for multiple scholarships at once. Start your search.

PRO TIP:  The number one reason why students don’t receive scholarships is because they don’t apply!
