Non-University Scholarships

The Student Financial Aid Office receives unsolicited announcements from non-University sources regarding scholarship opportunities. These notices are diverse and cover a wide range of criteria such as academic major, GPA, religious and fraternal affiliations, ethnic background, career goals, and personal interests. We provide a summarized database as a reference. This database is updated as new information becomes available and as deadlines pass.  This database is not inclusive of all non-University scholarships.

You may scroll down through the database below, or perform a Search on specific scholarship attributes and/or requirements found in this database.

Some websites which provide free scholarship searches are:
