Applying for scholarships for college students

As you continue your studies and try new extracurricular activities in college, you might be eligible for more scholarships you weren’t originally qualified for. Don't forget to revisit college scholarship opportunities regularly as you continue college or get more involved on or off campus.

Considerations

  • If you get more scholarship money, it might affect your other student aid.
  • All of your student aid added together can’t be more than your cost of attendance at your college or career school.
  • You’ll need to let your school know if you’ve been awarded a scholarship, so the financial aid office can subtract that amount from your cost of attendance.

Benefit

  • Remember, scholarships are free money, so you’ll still be paying less for college.
