Alabama Scholarships

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 and you aren't sure where you are going to get it. This is a common problem for 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. By using the state of residence as a search criterion, Scholarships.com can help 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 scholarship search at Scholarships.com.
