Scholarships are often filtered by academic major, which means they are only given to students who are receiving a degree in a particular field. To qualify for a scholarship based on your major, you often need to have already officially declared a major. In many cases, you do not need to have a specific major to be eligible for the scholarship. Instead, you can have one of several majors.
For example, Science scholarships often accept a wide variety of majors. Journalism scholarships may also accept English or Creative Writing majors, as long as the student has an interest in becoming a journalist.
