Scholarships are available for high school seniors, but also for anyone pursuing a two- or four-year degree, looking to change careers and go back to school, enrolled in a vocational program, in a pre-med program, completing a nursing degree, and more.

The deadline to apply is March 2.

Some scholarships are very specific, designated for graduates from a specific school or for an area of study. Many of the scholarships are renewable. Students need only apply once; the scholarship system will then match the student with all available scholarships for which they are eligible to apply.
