Scholarships for Continuing College Students

 

college scholarshipsThere are scholarships for continuing college students.  I find that too many current college students run to the financial aid office to take out more loans, adding to their debt burden rather than taking the time to research scholarships.  Additional scholarships are found at the institution the student attends and from outside organizations.

Freshman come into college thinking the scholarship search ended once they graduated from high school.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  In my 15 years of researching scholarships I have noticed a trend where more and more scholarships are offered for college sophomores, juniors and graduate students.  These scholarships should be researched in your junior and senior year of high school.  All colleges have a scholarship page which lists institutional scholarships and the requirements for receiving them.   Generally, a 3.0 GPA is required.

Where should you look for these scholarships?

  • Check your school’s departmental major website page
  • Financial Aid Office
  • Scholarship Search Engines (i.e. Fastweb)
  • scholarships4school.com
  • Follow Scholarshopmom on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
  • If all else fails, Google.
