Scholarship Search Tips
Research as many funding sources as possible!
Seniors, check with the colleges or universities to which you are applying. They may have additional requirements beyond the admission application to be considered for scholarships.
Attending community college? Most Virginia community colleges let you apply for many scholarships with just one application! Don't wait - many are due in February or March. Find your community college's scholarship page below:
Check with your high school's counseling office for local scholarships. College students, check in your department.
Check out our GRASP scholarships and our list of other local, state, and national scholarship programs.
Use these recommended search engines to help find reliable scholarship applications:
Check with your parents/guardians and other family members. Many companies offer scholarships solely to the children or relatives of employees.
If you are headed for a specific field of study, look at the leaders in that field or industry (for example, a pre-nursing or pre-med student should check websites for drug manufacturers or companies that do medical research).
Look at local organizations and groups such as churches and recreational centers.
