Corporate Scholarships

Scholarship information ranks amongst the most valuable data available to college students and aspiring college students to date. Many large companies and corporations sponsor scholarships. Also, many companies have large foundations that are completely separate from the corporate entity with which they are associated. The majority of these corporate scholarships are scholarships for high school students, but there are still quite a few for graduate and returning students who are ready to return to the academic world. It might be worth adjusting your scholarship strategy and take into account the amount of scholarship money corporate scholarships typically offer. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of such scholarships below.
