Private Scholarships

Private scholarships funds provided by donors outside the University.

The internet is one of the best ways to identify private scholarship opportunities. Free scholarship search services are compiled on www.finaid.org.

Nearly every town or city has service organizations that offer college students financial assistance. Find out from the various organizations in the community if they have scholarships available.

If you receive a scholarship from a group or individual, inform them of your gratitude and your progress. A letter of thanks goes far toward encouraging renewal of these awards.

Students are required to report all private scholarships they expect to receive to the Financial Aid Office.
