So, you are looking for Alabama Scholarships, are you? You’ve received a college
acceptance letter, said farewell to your friends and packed up all your stuff. There’s
just one problem - you don’t have the money to pay for a postsecondary education

students across the nation. Even students with jobs may have a hard time paying
for college. But students who reside in Alabama and/or are attending an
Alabama college or university do have one thing going for them. That’s right,
just living or attending school in Alabama makes students eligible for certain scholarships.

students find money for college. Below are a few Alabama scholarships that may be
found at our site. For additional information about scholarships and grants that
that may be found based on state and other criteria, you should conduct a free college
