Liberal Arts Scholarships

Liberal Arts is one of those majors that might be considered a "non-major" by some, equal almost to an "undecided" (which, by the way, is THE most popular major). Social Sciences, Humanities (each of which is, in and of itself, a broad major and includes many sub-majors) are a couple of examples, Creative Arts, also another broad major that is parent to several others is another example. Regardless, you should certainly take advantage of any Liberal Arts Scholarships you might find and, as always, we are here to see that you find plenty. Of course, we recommend you find all scholarships for which you might qualify, not just those in your major. You can do so by conducting a free scholarship search.
