Sources for Scholarships

Search in a variety of places for scholarships to increase opportunities.

Within your own network

Ask friends, family, members of organizations to which you belong, and your employer what they know about scholarship sources.

At your home university

Use the resources available to you through your home university.  Most universities have a scholarship webpage with information about scholarships available only to students at that school.

In your local community

Many organizations, businesses, and individuals offer scholarships to assist students in their communities. Contact these groups or persons directly for information, or look to social media. Some organizations offer scholarships on their website. Others advertise awards through Facebook or Twitter.

Professional associations

Some professional associations offer scholarships to their student members. If you belong to associations related to your field of study, current or future career, ask if they sponsor scholarships.
