Scholarships For College Students

College ScholarshipsScholarships for college students are similar to college grants in that they do not have to be repaid. Unfortunately, while it is quite easy to find out about grants, finding a scholarship often requires a bit of detective work.

Scholarships are often thought of as being available only for academic high achievers or those students who demonstrate a high level of sporting ability, but this is far from the case.

There are literally hundreds of different scholarships available each year and they are aimed at just about every group you care to mention.

For example, there are scholarships for residents of particular towns, cities and states; for minority students studying specific subjects; for students with parents serving in the Armed Forces, or who have served in the Armed Forces and are now veterans.

There are also scholarships for single parents in certain circumstances; for the children of local widows and indeed for students who fall into 1001 different categories.

The problem is finding a scholarship to suit your individual circumstances and that means searching.

In the table below we have listed just a handful of the hundreds of scholarships on offer to give you a flavor of the wide range of coverage provided by this free source of college funding.
