Area of Study Scholarship Winners

Our Area of Study Scholarship winners came from a variety of backgrounds but shared a passion for their chosen field of study and a drive for success. Their influences came from all sorts of places: childhood experiences, their cultural heritage, adversity they’ve overcome or maybe a "eureka moment" in high school or later. Their career ambitions were equally diverse, including battling the obesity epidemic with tastier health food, helping people with disabilities through the use of technology and sharing the joys of learning and discovery with others are just some of their ambitions.

The Area of Study Scholarships have since been replaced by new initiatives and programs but at one time were available to students pursuing study and careers in art, business, computer science, culinary arts, design, education, engineering, English, health, history, law, science and technology. Though Scholarships.com no longer offers the Area of Study Scholarships, we still seek to help ambitious, innovative and compassionate students further their educations and achieve their college goals by listing numerous major-based awards in our database.

We’d like to introduce you to the winners of the aforementioned scholarships and invite you to come back to Scholarships.com often. Maybe during your next visit, you will discover a major-based scholarship that's perfect for you! Check out the links below to view a brief bio for each "Area of Study" scholarship winner, as well as students' winning scholarship essays.
