ASPIRE: Scholarship Information
Class of 2023 list – This list includes national, regional and local scholarships. This is a list of private scholarships arranged in order by application deadline. This is a working document that is updated as information becomes available.
LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP LIST – This list will only have the local scholarships (also on the list above) for the class of 2023.
Class of 2024 list – as the class of 2023 list expires, I will build the list for next year. Keep checking back to this list as it will grow! Or you can use both the Class of 2023 and 2024 lists to plan for senior year.
***Don’t forget to check the scholarship opportunities at all the colleges you are applying to! In addition to researching this list, ASPIRE recommends all students research the scholarship opportunities at all the schools they are applying to as there are often additional applications for college specific scholarships in addition to the application for admission.
- General College Scholarships: some included with school admission application, some require separate application/essays
- Academic program specific scholarships (ex: College of Engineering, Forestry, Political Science)
HOW to find and complete scholarship applications:
