Applying for Scholarships is a self-guided class covering such topics as:

  • Institutional Scholarships
  • Private Scholarships
    • Large national scholarship programs
    • Identifying less competitive state and local scholarships
  • Tuition Reciprocity Agreements
  • ROTC Scholarship Programs
  • Opportunities for Athletes
  • Getting Organized
  • Tables and Forms
  • Writing Scholarship Essays

Since institutional scholarships provide the largest amount of funding for college, far out weighing funding from the state and federal government (i.e., Pell Grant, state scholarships); or from private scholarships (e.g., Gates Scholarship, Ron Brown Scholars, Jack Kent Cooke Scholars, Burger King Scholars, Coca Cola Scholars, etc.), there is a module devoted to institutional scholarships.

While large private scholarship programs are covered, students are guided in researching local scholarships and identifying scholarships to which their background and body of work are strong matches.

Forms and tables are provided to assist students in being well organized and an overview of scholarship essays is provided to ensure that students seek the best support for reviewing and proofreading scholarship essays and applications. 

Students may email questions or request a one-on-one session to further discussion their college and scholarship application strategies.
