Higher education costs are at an all-time high, and landing the right scholarship could be the difference between graduating debt-free or paying off loans for years and years.
Unlike a loan, a scholarship does not need to be repaid. It is a gift. Scholarships are granted by a variety of entities, like schools, private endowments, businesses, religious organizations, nonprofits, the government, and professional associations. There are thousands of scholarships available to undergrad and graduate students throughout the country. Below are some resources to help you find scholarships.
