Minority Scholarships

This section contains a listing of scholarships for minorities that we hope will prove useful to a large audience of minority students who need additional scholarship money to help pay for school. These include African American Scholarships, Native American Scholarships, Hispanic Scholarships and many more. Students of a wide variety of ethnicities will find they qualify for at least one of the scholarships for minorities listed on our site. A number of large scholarship funds exist to benefit members of specific ethnic groups, such as African American scholarships and Native American scholarships. Not all scholarships for minorities target United States-specific groups, either. For example, students in Canada may qualify for a number of aboriginal scholarships, whether they study at home or abroad. There are also many general scholarships for minorities, open to students from any underrepresented group.

We hope these scholarship opportunities will prove useful and welcome any comments or suggestions on how we might better present them or reach out to those who might benefit from them in order to increase awareness of the financial aid that is available, but about which those in the most need might not be aware.

Please feel free to explore some of these opportunities by clicking on the links below and be sure to conduct a free college scholarship search to find more scholarships that may be available to you.

African American Scholarships

Among the major categories by which scholarships are categorized is ethnicity, along with all the others considered "minorities" by virtue of the fact that they tend to be underrepresented in many areas of society. Colleges and universities, along with many philanthropic organizations, are finding ways to provide these students with the wherewithal to pursue a higher level of education and, subsequently, a career of their choosing. However, there may be more in the list of requirements for some of these scholarships than having a certain percentage of your ethnic makeup be that of African descent. And there also may be dozens of scholarships, perhaps more, that have nothing to do with your ethnicity for which you qualify. That's why you should just conduct a free scholarship search to find all the scholarships in our database for which you qualify.

Hispanic Scholarships

Hispanic scholarships are numerous, but, as with any other singular feature or category, be careful not to rule out others by myopically searching for just one type of scholarship. Whether it is your ethnicity, a sport at which you excel or a musical instrument. Good grades always help, too, right? There are so many reasons for winning a scholarship and you probably don't know what they all are and sometimes it will be the combination of several of the aforementioned. That's why you really should conduct a free scholarship search to find all the scholarships in our database for which you qualify.

Native American Scholarships

This happens to be a much less competitive category than the above two, naturally, because there are fewer Native Americans than there are Latinos and African Americans. That aside, it is still better and more efficient to search using our free scholarship search service for the simple fact that you never know how you might qualify for a scholarship. There are millions and we can remove all but the 100 or so you qualify for from your plate, so you can concentrate on those you might actually win and leave the rest behind.
