Scholarship Bulletin Board

The Financial Aid Office is periodically contacted by outside parties regarding scholarship opportunities.  They will be posted here and updated regularly.

You can also use tools like www.fastweb.com to search for national scholarships. You should always maximize the amount of free money you use to pay for college before borrowing. Keep in mind national scholarships are much more competitive and often times much harder to attain than local scholarships. Even though the awarded amounts on national scholarships may be higher, you most likely have a better chance of getting a scholarship from a local business or organization.
