Outside Scholarships

“HELP! I Need More Money for School!” -- How to Find Outside Scholarships

What is an “outside scholarship?”

An outside scholarship is an award that comes from an “outside” agency that is not affiliated with the University or federal and state governments. Outside agencies include businesses, nonprofit organizations, civic and professional associations, community organizations, and even professional sports teams.

Sounds great! How can I get one?
