Smaller scholarships require far less work and are usually paid directly to the student via check, allowing them to spend the money on anything school-related. Since large-dollar scholarships have a far larger payout, they naturally require more work in the application process but can ultimately cover most of or, in some cases, one's entire tuition bill. If you are willing to put in the work to win large-dollar scholarships, consider applying for these scholarships greater than $50,000, beginning with the list below. You can also search for scholarships by scholarship amount if you're interested in seeing what scholarships range between $100 and $50,000.
