Tools for finding additional outside scholarships:

Outside scholarships are great tools to help with college funding. Below are some web sites that offer FREE searches on outside scholarships:

Here are a couple of things we have learned along the way about outside scholarships that you should keep in mind:

  • Never pay for information about outside scholarships; it’s free from web sites such as the ones mentioned above.
  • Many outside scholarships are available for only your first year of college. Sometimes, students enter college with a significant amount of outside scholarships, only to have none of those funds after the first year. Be careful and plan accordingly.
