External Scholarships

Opportunities are Everywhere

 

When searching for external scholarships:

  • Start with your local community - the candidate pool is smaller, which may increase your chance of receiving an award
  • Take caution when an application requires any personal information that does not pertain to the scholarship, such as social security numbers or access to social media accounts
  • Pay attention to the timeline for award selection - some might take up to a year or more
  • Find niche scholarships that pertain to who you are as an individual and what your interests are
  • Avoid applying for any scholarship that charges an application fee

Be sure to review all eligibility and deadline requirements before applying. And remember, you can use Porches to notify us of scholarships you receive. All scholarship payments should be mailed to:
