Details on the Scholarship List
If you have never looked at the list (link below), or it's been a while, review the entire list using the three steps. If you check it each week, you can save time by just looking at the scholarships with the "NEW" icon; these have been added/updated since the last update. This is by no means a complete list, but it does include local and regional scholarships that are often not found using web-based scholarship searches.
How to best use the scholarship list
Read the "Eligibility" column. If you don't meet these requirements, don't waste time going to the scholarship site.
Check the "Deadline." Is there still time to gather everything needed and submit the application on time?
Follow the link under "How to Apply." Here you will find the details -- is an essay required? letters of recommendation? official transcripts? a specific format for submission (paper copy, on-line application, scanned then e-mailed)?
NOTE: Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the rows; a newly listed scholarship may be there!
