Scholarships for Men

We offer a wide variety of awards here at Scholarships.com (just check out our free scholarship search or peruse our “College Scholarships” page) and while scholarships geared towards men specifically are not very common we do have quite a few listed in our database.

For instance, Iowa State University and the University of Texas at Austin both provide scholarships to male students who demonstrate leadership, service and academic achievement. Northwestern University, the University of Illinois and Ohio State University (to name a few) all offer the Balanced Man Scholarship to recognize incoming freshmen that exhibit a well-rounded approach to life. Below are just some of the scholarships available to male high school and college students but for even more scholarship opportunities, create a profile and conduct a free scholarship search today.
