Scholarships & Grant Opportunities
The scholarship opportunities below are available to students who intend to pursue college degrees. Most of these scholarships have deadlines for submitting them. We encourage you to apply early as possible because some are paid out on a first-come, first-served basis. As you apply for each scholarship, you will notice similarities among them that will make the process easier as you submit more applications. It is entirely possible to obtain full funding for college from undergraduate entry to a doctorate. The more scholarships you apply for, the better your chances.

Several online financial aid calculators like the FinAid's QuickEFC calculator and CollegeBoard's College Financing Calculators will help you better understand the steps for successfully getting from where you are to where you want to be.

Links provided will occasionally expire or are moved to another web address, but the scholarships generally repeat annually. IF a link does not work, try going to the home page for the organization by accessing the base URL, then explore from there. Reports of broken links may be sent to the "Webmaster" email address at the bottom of the page. In addition to the listings below, remember to ask locally among your family members, church groups, employers (your parent's and yours), and social and political organizations. Very often a specific small amount–like $45 for a specific textbook–will be successful, when generalized guesses–"Oh, around $200"–are more likely to be refused.

100Xtra Scholarship & Grant Resources

A few newer opportunities come to our attention occasionally. The following opportunities are additional resources for your consideration:

Temple University's Beech Scholarship

The Beech Scholarship Fund will award a one-time, $1,000 scholarship to four qualifying minority high school seniors entering Temple University as a full-time freshman for the fall 2013 academic year. The Scholarships are in honor of Beech founders, Dr. Bernard C. Watson, John C. Haas, F. Otto Haas, and Floyd W. Alston.

The one-time commitment requires a grade point average of 2.75 or higher and declaring a major in Arts, Business, Engineering, or Education and commendable extra-curricular activities through their school, church, community organization or work.

Interested Applicants may contact Christine Brown by email at cbrown@beechico.com to request an application. The deadline for receipt of submission is May 1, 2013. Awardees will be notified by mail in June 2013.

100+ Scholarship & Grant Resources
