Largest Dollar Amount Scholarships

When searching for scholarships, many students believe that they’re unlikely to find money for college in any substantial amount. While it can seem like the majority of scholarship opportunities out there are for paltry sums of $100 or $200, this is not the case with every award. Numerous scholarship awards are offered in amounts that almost anyone would consider worthwhile. But for the students who are most selective, ambitious, or pressed for time, we’ve compiled a list of some of the largest dollar amount scholarships, prizes that will likely pay tuition or more for anywhere from one to four years of school. Many of the largest dollar amount scholarships have some of the stiffest competition and the longest lists of selection criteria. However, you shouldn’t automatically discount these competitions. Take a few minutes and read the scholarship information provided below. You may have a shot at winning scholarships that will go a long way towards funding your education.

This section contains a listing of some of the largest dollar amounts available from a scholarship. While we definitely recommend you conduct a free college scholarship search to find all the scholarships for which you qualify and not just those worth $20,000 or more, this list definitely offers some potentially lucrative opportunities. Please feel free to explore some of these opportunities by clicking on the links below.
