Federal Scholarships

Universities, corporations, and philanthropic organizations are not the only sources of college scholarships. The federal government provides a number of scholarship opportunities, in addition to the federal grant programs you may already know about, such as Federal Pell Grants.

Types of Federal Scholarships

Like other scholarships, federal scholarships are awarded based on various criteria, which can range from financial need (usually determined by completing the FAFSA on the Web), to a student’s chosen major. Federal scholarship awards vary in amount, and can range up to the full amount of a student’s tuition and fees. Federal scholarships may or may not be renewable, depending on the award. Some federal scholarships are awarded by the student’s academic institution, while others are awarded by a federal agency or an organization working in partnership with some branch of the federal government.

Federal scholarships are typically offered by federal agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Transportation, and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. Many federal scholarships are designated specifically for students in high-need fields or for students doing coursework relevant to a particular federal agency’s mission. Several major-specific federal scholarships feature either a fellowship/internship or an employment agreement with the awarding agency.
