University Scholarships

Nearly every college or university offers at least one scholarship award, especially for their students. These scholarships tend to be fairly generous- occasionally covering as much as a student’s full cost of attendance. While some of these awards are well-publicized, others are harder to find. The largest school-specific awards tend to come from major universities with large endowments, though this is not always the case, as some small liberal arts colleges are also committed to offering generous financial aid.

It is a good idea to take a minute researching and reviewing scholarship opportunities at each school as a major part of your college search. Find out if local universities have scholarships for students from your hometown. These are becoming an increasingly popular form of local scholarships. Additionally, many major universities are offering full-tuition scholarships or other substantial awards to the high-qualifying students, either in the form of need-based or academic scholarships for college.

Finding a good university scholarship can be an instrumental part of choosing a college, especially if you find one you can win. Competition tends to be fierce, and applications are often due early in the academic calendar. The sooner you are aware of deadlines and expectations, the better off you will be. Below is a list of a few of the university scholarships that are available. For more information on these awards and these schools, check out our scholarship search and college search tools.
