Corporate Scholarships

Scholarship information may be among the most valuable data available to college students and aspiring college students these days. Many large companies and corporations sponsor scholarships these days, many have large foundations that are completely separate from the corporate entity with which they are associated and employ dozens of employees all their own. The majority of these corporate scholarships, it appears, are scholarships for high school students, but there are still quite a few for graduate and returning students who may have been out of the academic setting for a while and are ready to return. It might be worth adjusting your scholarship strategy to take into account the amount of scholarship money corporate scholarships typically offer. We have put together a list of some of the most popular ones for you to peruse. Enjoy!
